Conclusion of Gome Borehole Project – Malawi
This project has been successfully completed, under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Tomas Pickering. To see the history of the project CLICK HERE.
The project was to increase the depth of the borehole in Gome Village, and improve it so as to provide water year-round.
The materials were purchased, and the work was done under the direction of a technician the next day. Tomas relates that the residents did most of the actual work, and now have a good idea on how to fix the borehole.
Tomas conveyed that the villagers thanked us “a million times (zikomo kwambiri)”, and were extremely happy to have this source of safe water restored to the community.
We are grateful to The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this successful project.
