This machine digs hundreds of feet into the ground, reaching depths that have provided water to the over 5,000 people
Thanks to a drill rig like this one, and the work of our incredible staff, the people of the community, and our donors and volunteers, Ebagueye received designation as an official village! It may not look like much, but this machine digs hundreds of feet into the ground, reaching depths that have provided water to the over 5,000 people of Ebagueye and surrounding communities daily for the past 7 years. During the dry season as many as 35,000 people and animals rely on the Ebagueye borehole. Why do we need to drill hundreds of feet into the ground to find clean water?
Open wells, which reach 300 feet, simply cannot get the job done.
In the Azawak, most of the water is hidden deep under the ground, sometimes greater than 600 feet under the surface. Boreholes allow us to reach the aquifer (underground water), and pump the water to the surface.
We use the success of Ebagueye to fuel our ambition to bring climate resiliency to the rest of the Azawak.
We now embark on our largest borehole project, the “Water is Education” project.
