We are proud to announce that Riley & Rees has funded a well project that will supply water to approximately 2500 people per day. Installation of the well for water in the village is under way! As a result of this donation, one of the most important fundamental needs of the village is going to be met.
From the age of 5, a child is trained to walk an average of 9 miles to get a bucket of water or to walk 9-20 miles to get food from the farm. This leaves very little, if any, time to learn or devote to education. By installing a well in the village, another gift is given - the gift of time. Children of the village will have time to learn. The need for supplies will be greater than ever. As well, funds to ensure proper maintenance of the well will be needed.
