Faith Children’s Village is so thankful for our cooperating partners that came to our aid and made this well drilling training project a reality.
We praise HIM for providing the finances to see this thru. Four (4) of our older boys and four (4) of our staff joined force to break into two teams that would be trained to work with the drill kit. The Team that was here to train us, first started out with the theory and later in the week began to show us, and train us with the practical. “Learning the technique involved and how to coordinate a team was a marvel to watch.”
Our young boys stepped up to the task given to them and did very well. During training, our teams (under instruction) successfully dug a well of about 12mtrs in depth, installed a hand pump and it is working, supplying our tomatoe plants with water and giving our village safe drinking water.
We already have offers of people around community interested in having these wells done for them. We would like to partner with Water4 and have those special pumps supplied to us as they are ideal for a remote place like where we are. We trust and hope this will be another way to help our young people earn a living in future. The village can also benefit from this project.
Logistics are underway and the management team of Faith Children’s Village is working towards a sound business proposal so that we can in the near future get this project going. We for the moment are sinking wells around our 5 hectares of land that we are on. This will be an additional help to our water reticulation at the village.
To all parties that made this possible, we are saying, ” thank you so much for your help and God bless you!”
