The project was to dig a well and install an electric pump and a backup manual pump.

Shala reports:

The project was completed in accordance with the Project Description by the local contractor. The well was dug and the pumps installed on time and within budget.

This project has met a critical need for a vulnerable community and group of people. The situation was that the orphans of Casa Miani didn’t have enough water to support their livelihood projects. With this new water pump in place they are now able to sustain their bakery, piggery, and continue work and expansion of their organic garden.

The children and staff of Casa Miani are excited about the future possibilities of the garden because we will eventually be able to produce harvests not only for the children’s consumption but also to give donations to partner agencies, and to start selling goods to the local community for profit.

This water project has been a huge blessing for the children and many to come.
