Conclusion of Jali Women’s Garden Well Project – The Gambia

This project has been completed under the technical direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Maggie Rudick. To read about the beginning of this project, CLICK HERE.

This project was to improve the 6 wells that support the Women’s Garden to have the capacity to provide an adequate supply of water to irrigate the crops during the entire year. Each well was dug approximately an additional 3 meters.

Once the money came in, the diggers went right. to work and completed the digging. They assured the women that the wells are deep enough, and that they will come back and dig for free if there are any problems next year.

Maggie informs us that it was wonderful to see the women so excited, and that the entire Jali village is very appreciative of the assistance they received.

We are grateful to The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this successful project.
