Our First Clean Water Project

Gaining access to clean water is at the heart of programs designed to improve people’s lives in regions of the world where water is scarce. Though this borehole eventually ran dry, and we subsequently had to drill an 80-meter/262-feet, the project was able to be launched because of clean water access. Women, their children, the families on the farm, and the chickens all rely on water, without which they would perish. Without the water from this well at the beginning of the project, we would not have achieved multiple annual successes. Our clean water initiative has enabled us to conserve water resources, thus reducing the stress on the borehole and realizing greater efficiency in human productivity and crop yield.
