Kerr Auldi Pump Repair Project – The Gambia

Women Cooking - The Gambia Location

Kerr Auldi, The Gambia

Community Description
Kerr Auldi is a small village of about 300 people. It is located in the Central River Division of The Gambia, 6 km east of Kaur.

There are two pumps that are not functioning and in need of repair. The first is at the Lower Basic School. The second is in the village of Kerr Auldi. Villagers use the pumps depending on their location.

With the pumps not working, the village is left with only one closed well. This forces the people to use two open wells, with health and safety issues.

Project Description

The two broken water pumps will be repaired by replacing broken parts. The pump in the school needs a new cylinder for its base. The pump in the village has a chain that needs to be replaced.

The replacement parts are available in Farafenni, and the work will be quickly done by a local technician.
