We completed our well project  in August 2022 on the Africompassion School Site in the Kogaja Village, Mara, Tanzania! After we complete construction on our school building, we plan on doing more projects for neighboring villages in the future!

Dirty Water

These are what watering holes in Africa often look like. It might be a muddy puddle that the villagers share with the local animals or a crocodile or hippo-infested lake or river.  They are usually contaminated by human and animal waste.  They are not fit to drink, yet that is what the people have to drink. 

These unclean watering holes, puddles, and streams often result in horrendous parasites and sicknesses like typhoid, cholera, and dysentery that they frequently do not have medical access to obtain treatment They often result in dehabilitation from illness, and sometimes death, especially in small children.

By providing an African village with clean, sustainable water, you can essentially save the lives of hundreds and thousands of people for generations to come.

Clean Water

Africompassion completed a substantial water project in Kogaja! We successfully drilled a borehole on the Africompassion site. The drilling rig struck an abundant source of water at 460 feet.

We installed two 5,000-liter water tanks on a tower, an electric submersible pump, and a water station with four faucets to provide clean water for more than 1,000 villagers.

This is a remarkable, life changing project for these good people.


What's To Come?

In the future, we will first provide large portable water filters like this BYU designed system to neighboring villages to provide them drinkable water in the short term as we work towards additional wells and similar water projects in the region. A portable water system that can filter 5 gallons a minute costs about $2,000, and a well project costs about $10,000 to 15,000 due to the depth of the water table in this area.
