The photos show the delight of the villagers after the official handover of the water system; the tank and solar panels, Inverter & submersible pump supply three separate villages from a single Borehole, using 3km+ of pipe work. The taps are all now delivering good pressure to all locations. The water committees in each village organise collection of 2 cents per 25 litres from the villagers and that money is banked to support the maintenance of the system.The daily running cost is zero, solar panels collect the energy and the pump pumps!. These people will have clean drinking water for years resulting in better health for everyone and will definitely lower the infant mortality rate.
Thanks to all who have helped us get this far.
