A few months ago one of our donors was kind enough to fund a mechanised borehole for the village of Saviour Benin. Just a few years ago this was a very deprived village, but with the help of clean water, latrines and hygiene training they’re beginning to get on their feet.
The photo shows the bucket queue for water, and also the way the village has organised itself to sell water to other nearby villages. The borehole was very good, and they have plenty of water to spare. They will save the money for maintenance and repair, and will probably soon have money to spare for some project – building a kindergarten for example.
