In April/May, 2010, we had the pleasure of working with Global Partners in this Central Asian country to train them in the concepts and use of hand drilling systems and water outreach. An EXP-50 unit was left behind for additional training purposes and replication by locals. Together, we were able to construct an in-country, deep well pump for less than $200 – this pump will be able to be replicated throughout the region. Several sites were identified for future water projects to be conducted as a way to reach more rural Tajik communities.

Central Asia – Tajikistan
Training in water filtration, training in soap making, installing wells, training in drilling techniques,
In April/May, 2010, we had the pleasure of working with Global Partners in this Central Asian country to train them in the concepts and use of hand drilling systems and water outreach.
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.
