Give Water!

Amman Imman - Giving Tuesday

Borehole Drilled! 

In October, we drilled the “Water is Education” borehole! The water is both abundant and of high quality.

For two days, families came from up to 15 miles away to fill up their jerrycans with free water during the pumping trial. They washed themselves and their clothes as children, like Barka and Houlaye, swam and played. Herds of animals drank contentedly. There was so much joy!

Barka drinks and drinks.

Loving the water!

But then the pumping trial ended... 

People and animals continued traveling to the borehole expecting to find water. Sadly, we had to turn them away. Now, they must now wait until we build the the water tower, faucets, piping and animal troughs.   

We are almost there! Help us finish the borehole!
