Kumi Christian Well Rehab

Posted by Steve Hall on February 19

Kumi Christian Visionary School is located in the Eastern Region of Uganda in the town of Kumi. H2O for Life schools previously supported a borehole well that was installed on the school property in 2014.

Although the well had been working adequately, the government of Uganda has passed a law requiring all new wells to be fitted with stainless steel pipes. These pipes never rust and last a lot longer than galvanized iron pipes. Our implementing partner, Drop in the Bucket, has been outfitting all of their new wells with stainless steel pipes for the last few years.

This borehole well rehabilitation included the following:
-Removing all of the old galvanized riser pipes and replacing them with new stainless steel pipes
-Cleaning and lubricating the hand pump
-Training members of the school and community to maintain and repair the pump when needed

Thanks to the following for supporting this project:
-Boardman Glenwood Junior High School, OH
-Chicago West Side Christian School, IL
-Washington High School Interact Club, MO
