Mungadze Orphanage, Tengwe, Zimbabwe
Supplying Water To
Depth of Borehole: 42 meters
Previous Water Source: A shallow open well, which was extremely exposed and poor water conditions. The Well was 2km from the orphanage
Project Inspiration: Status: At the time of drilling, we thought it was dry hole, due to no sign of water. However drilling rigs can often block up the underground water fractures with the extremely high air pressure. Once the drilling is complete, the fractures have the opportunity to open up and allow the water to flow. So what we thought was a wasted drill, turns out to be a great borehole with 32 meters of water. We plan to raise funds in the near future to complete this project & install a brand new bush pump + platform.
