The clean water a developing community desperately needs is right underneath them. And it's amazing how a relatively small investment to get to it can make such a dramatic difference in so many lives. That's why we fund these Well projects!
The areas that we have proposed our up and coming projects are in the regions most impacted by drought & famine. Water sources are not easily reached and some wells must be over 500 feet deep. This introduces all kinds of challenges, including expenses.
Because the water is so deep, a motorized pump must be installed. The water is simply too heavy to lift from that depth with a hand pump. Diesel generators, large electric pumps, piping, storage tanks and housing for it all can drive the cost up to $50,000 or more. But, since these very large systems serve so many people, they are still quite cost effective. In fact, some of these large systems can serve over 3,000 people!
We only partner with established drillers with a lot of experience for these complicated projects.
