Water4.org is revolutionizing water well drilling by producing human-powered tools where no electricity or heavy equipment is available, to countries worldwide. We are taking a kit like the one being packed here to Uganda.
Thank you to Steve Stewart who has engineered these parts, to Pumps of Oklahoma and Water4.org. Thanks also to Jeff and Jeffery Deavenport for helping pack up the kit in seven duffle bags. Thanks to Chris Fields for providing the duffles and to the Garnett Church of Christ for donating money for this kit.
Drilling with these tools costs a fraction of cost of a drilling rig and gets the community involved in sustainable development, drilling for their own water. Clean water is the first building block of health. A third of the world does not have clean water. Well water is one of the best methods for getting naturally filtered water to communities.
