This was one of 10 wells drilled by what we call "Water Clubs". Families help each other and learn to build and maintain their own pumps. Wells in this area are between 150 and 175 ft deep.
Water for All is about helping the rural poor and making Jesus known in word and deed. We are working with people of good will of all faiths and background to do good.

What Drives Us? WFA Human Dignity Values and Philosophy
Men and women are made in God’s image and God desires to share with us his dignity in loving relationship with him. We believe in the need for all to come into loving relationship with God through faith in his Son Jesus.
Poverty exists when people are not in right relationship to God and/or don’t have basic dignity or proper dominion over their own lives and surroundings. God desires families and individuals to have dignity, that is a proper, healthy, dominion over their own bodies, homes, livelihoods, and natural environments. We believe this pleases God.
Jesus said the greatest comandment was to love God and love your neighbor. WFA people, programs, and activities seek to humbly honor God by loving people and sharing the good news of Jesus and by empowering families to fight poverty and have dignity and love and serve one another.
To God be the Glory!
