Jali Pump Project – The Gambia

Map, The GambiaLocation
Kiang Jali, The Gambia

Community Description
Jali is a medium sized village in The Gambia, with about 1800 people, located 25 km off the south bank road. It is a very motivated farming community. Nearly all women work in the rice fields during the rainy season while men have millet and peanut fields.

Jali prides itself on its community interest. When a problem arises, everyone meets together at the village "bantaba"- a large wooden sitting area under a shade tree to discuss a solution.

The GambiaProject Description
The village has four water pumps, three of which are presently not functioning. This project is to repair one of the pumps while the community provides the funding for the remaining two.

The funds will be used to pay for a new chain and for the services of a technician to install it. All pumps are being repaired at once to avoid the need for multiple service trips.

Project Impact
This pump provides safe, clean water for the entire east end of the village. 170 people directly use this pump for water.

This project falls squarely within our guidelines in that a pump that is not functioning is repaired. At a small fraction of the cost of installing a new pump, a critical need of the village is satisfied.

The additional favorable factor is that the village is able to contribute in such a substantial way toward the resolution of the overall problem.
