Our boreholes are drilled to enable them to be upgraded to a fully integrated water system, from a hand-pump or standpipe with taps to piped water fed to individual compounds.
Boreholes can be drilled more efficiently and more quickly, to tap into deeper aquifers, avoiding the challenges facing traditional open wells, which are at risk of not consistently providing water during dry months.
Boreholes can provide a more sustainable, safer and reliable source of water for the whole community and avoid the risk of cross contamination of water bourne diseases.
Boreholes are safe for all community members to use, both women and children can gain easy access to water, without the risk of accidents and deaths from wells.
Boreholes can be drilled quickly and safely. A hand-dug open well can take weeks to dig, whereas a borehole can be drilled within 48 hours.
