At Wellboring GroundWater , we roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty. Our model can be described as bottom –up providing a local solution to a global problem. Our projects utilize local materials, local labor and ingenuity and ownership is transferred to the communities upon completion. More importantly, we focus on optimizing sustainability of our water projects by forming long-lasting, collaborative relationships with communities. We do not build water systems in isolation. Instead we work with communities to co-create programs that are appropriate for them and the environment in which they live. Learn more about our approach.
Water Wells Constructions & Equipping
We are borehole drilling social enterprise that specializes in drilling boreholes in the toughest of environments. Wellboring Groundwater operates three water drill rigs namely PRD 650 drill, and two Ls 200 portable drill rigs. The PRD 650 is a robust DTH cum ROTARY combination rig that goes to depths of 180 meters, while Ls 200 are cost effective potable mud rotary drill rig that can be moved through any terrain and drills to a maximum depth of 60 meters. The rigs are suitable for various geological formation including consolidated laterite, highly collapsible alluvial formations and fractured granite. Please check our gallery to see some of our completed projects.
School Health and Hygiene education (SHHE)
SHHE programs works to jumpstart or develop health clubs in primary schools. Of the schools that do have little health Clubs, the majority are not effective. In order to increase participation in hygiene education activities at the primary school level, we train pupils “little doctors” who can play an active role in their schools.
Pupils in the Little health Clubs will be trained in washing their hands with soap; promoting messages about hygiene practices; supervising and helping their classmates with hygiene practices; and assisting their teachers with these activities as necessary. The pupils may also help by cleaning school toilets, classrooms, and the general premises at least once per week. Little doctors may also remind their classmates of how to properly wash their hands with soap and water during a weekly assembly
LVIP LATRINE CONSTRUCTION
We construct, lined ventilated improved pit latrine (LVIP); which is a pit latrine with a vent pipe fitted to the pit and a screen (flyscreen) at the top outlet of the pipe and the pit lined with trapezium blocks to support the walls. VIP latrines are an improvement to overcome the disadvantages of simple pit latrines, e.g. fly and mosquito nuisance and unpleasant odors, as a simple solution to the open defecation and improving the simple latrines that often sink because of the loose soil formation.
