Well #1 Has Been Drilled!

I just received word from Mark Warren of Global Benefit that we have our first well in the ground!  The folks at Living Waters International are taking care of the drilling and even do health and hygiene training for the people in the community around the well.  This photo comes courtesy of Google Earth.  The village that the well was drilled in is in an area in Jabana Sector called Nyarukurazo.  The folks there number more than 850, and were previously getting their water from a ditch that was runoff from a sugar cane plant. 

Thanks to all the youth at Impact who helped drill well #1.  The students over at Bow Memorial School raised $5000.00 towards well #2 with their walk-a-thon last month.  

Let’s get drilling!
