Ker Ngornyan Pump Repair Project – The Gambia
Ker Ngornyan, North Bank Region, The Gambia
Ker Ngornyan is a small village of about 400 people on the main road. The people are farmers who mostly grow groundnuts, coos, and sesame. Some people are keeping livestock including cows. At least two farmers are making good efforts in tree planting.
The main pump for drinking water in the village is non-functional.
This project is to repair the main pump by replacing the broken parts, including the piston fittings.
This is a routine job performed by a local craftsman. The parts are known collectively as a “repair kit”, and are sourced locally.
400 people will benefit from this project.
Peace Corps Volunteer Directing Project
This is Suzanne’s 4th well project, the other 3 being:

Access to clean water is being restored to this village. This is a great example of how a tiny investment can make a tremendous difference in the lives of a large number of people.
