How do we choose which villages receive new water wells? Field Director Raul Diole meets with villages that are requesting a well. He does a site survey and completes a Village Water Well Application form that is sent to our office for final approval.
How do you make sure water wells with hand pumps keep in working order?
We drill our wells on church properties. From the church, a Water Well Committee is formed, comprised of individuals who are trained--with hands-on experience--on how to fix the few working parts of the pump.
Why do we drill water wells in Maganja da Costa district in northern Mozambique? 60% of people in Mozambique are without clean, safe water. 1 in 5 children, under the age of 5, die every year from waterborne diseases that come from drinking dirty, contaminated water.
