We have trained and set up an In-Country Repair & Maintenance Team to be part of the solution.
Our incredible local team work each week, looking after all our newly installed water projects, along with repairing water wells which they find sitting abandoned and broken for many years often between 6-10 years. They fix them and adopt them into our program to ensure a continuous flow of safe, clean drinking water for years to come. Our team works all year round and deals promptly with any issues which may arise.
Our vision is to see this region and beyond completely saturated with clean drinking water, helping one community at a time.
Water for Africa seeks to build and utilize the capacities of the communities we work in. Our key desire is to help communities realise their long-term best interests and to help bring self-help, self-reliance and sustainable change to the individuals, families and to the community without discrimination.
We work with and train local people to participate in the drilling team and assign a community committee member to take responsibility for the new water project once it is handed over. This ensures the sustainability of the project for years to come.
