Deep Well


Did you know that if the average distance to the moon is 394,400 km, African women together walk the equivalent of a trip to the moon and back 16 times a day to supply their households with water?

The saddest part of this is the water they bring back is usually contaminated and carries with it all kinds of disease.

With a well in the community, not only is the drinking water much safer, the physical demand on women is lessened immensely and they can spend more time on income generating activities.
