New Well: Ogangai Kidetok

July 26, 2017
By locating wells in schools and providing water related educational materials, we support education in the village. Attendance skyrockets when a well is built, particularly among girls, who are typically tasked with fetching the family’s daily water. When water is at the school, girls can come to school instead of having to journey long distances to fetch the family’s water.

Building a well is fairly simple, but it’s a longer term commitment to help ensure it stays functional for years to come. That’s why once we’ve built the well, we provide the locals with tools and train them in simple repairs, help set up funds to pay for future repair costs, and come back regularly to check in. Our job, beyond installation, is when and if a well breaks, to help ensure they don’t stay broken.
