Since the drilling of this new borehole in June, and the attachment of a submersible pump powered by solar panels, there has been running water in both the primary school and secondary school as well as the surrounding village. The borehole automatically pumps water to a 20L bucket which is connected to a number of taps. The locals have benefitted greatly from the taps by reducing the time spent collecting water drastically. One local even stated that “now we have running water, we are no longer a village, we are a town.”
