Lives Touched

We built and installed a simple Canzee pump out of PVC. In the end we were able to install a working, simple pump that the women and children were are able to use. We were surprised at the type of soil we found here. We expected the water table to be much shallower. The soil here had lots of hard clay. It is also somewhat expensive here for resources, costing approximately $375 to dig, build, and establish a pump and well system. But, the items we bought were some of the best supplies that I have found in Africa. The PVC was very thick and strong, and of high quality. With Patrick and Revelier being permanent fixtures there, I truly believe that more pumps will be built.
