The water supply in the Gammol school of Abuko depends on the proper functioning of the electricity network. If there is no electricity (which happens regularly), there is also no water. That is why we are installing a tower with a 5000 liter barrel. The school always has clean water.

Gidda Sukuta is a village in Kombo East with a growing population of 1500 inhabitants. Especially in the region adjacent to Giboroh Kuta there is a need for clean water.

In Makumbaya, north-east of the airport, we are installing a new water supply with a 7 meter water tower, a 3000 liter water tank, 800 meters of pipes and 7 taps. Omar and Lamin have already placed some of these towers this year and know how to distribute the work well. People from the village come to help. Many hands make light work.

About 1500 people have now clean water.

The pump of our water system in Jalambang is broken and needs to be replaced. That's fast, the pump was only installed in the spring.

The Gambian electricity supply is very irregular, causing the pump to burn. We want to prevent this in the future and we installed solar panels that will provide the pump with power evenly.

In Wassadung, a few kilometers from our previous project in Joreng, we were asked to restore their well. This was a project of the European Development Fund, but it is lacking maintenance and needed to be repaired.

We had to drill a new well and we reused the existing material: a tank of 11,000 L with the necessary connections and the pump. This way the entire village gets clean water again.
