Today we officially hand over the well to the village community of Bamindor. The well is on public land and from now on the village will take care of the installation.

There is singing and dancing and with speeches from village chiefs. The women are very happy. They don't have to walk that far for water. It just comes from the tap and is pure. Children are less ill and a vegetable garden becomes possible.

Solar panels provide the pump with electricity. The pump works from sunrise to sunset. After sunset there is 1000 liters of water in the tank. When the tank is full and the pump is still working, the water returns to the well.

The work is coming to an end. The well will be operational within a few days.
