The following is a summary of the conclusion report:

This project was to drill a well in Wondo Genet.  The depth of the well was 32 meters.

The output of this project was expected to:
1. Reduce waterborne disease cases;
2. Medical cost for treating diseases related to unclean water reduced;
3.  Personal hygiene and sanitation improved; and
4.  Reduce the long distance and hours to water points.

The project was a 100% success, and we are proud to say that this village of Wondo Genet now has clean drinking water for the first time.

The villagers are grateful to Water Charity for providing clean water.  All in all, the project was a great success.

This project was the 1st in our Ethiopia Borehole Program, which is itself an initiative of our East Africa Water & Sanitation Program. Its conclusion marks the success of the program which we hope to expand now to other needy villages around the country.

We would like to commend the collaborative effort Water Charity, Selam Awassa, and Wine 2 Water, for executing this much-needed project.  Through collaboration, we were able to do this work for a fraction of what it would normally cost.
