Wells cost roughly $15,000 to $17,500 each. The areas where we work are extremely remote, causing our wells to cost more than wells in other parts of the world.
Short-term teams and long-term missionaries train communities in health and hygiene, empowering them to maintain a well’s health. Missionaries on the ground monitor wells, ensuring they function properly.
Every Village uses local partners on the ground to drill water wells in communities located within our focus areas.
Most of our wells are drilled during the dry season when the water table is at its lowest point and the roads are maneuverable. We do this to ensure wells are drilled deep enough to be sustainable and allow drilling equipment to be transported efficiently. Dry season is usually between November and March.
