Construction is going well in the Goncha woreda of East Gojam, Amahara, Ethiopia.
5 of the 7 hand-dug well projects have reached clean water and the cement rings have been constructed and fitted into the wells to help protect the source. The purchase of hand-pumps is now taking place.
The other 2 hand-dug well projects at Kufif and Lower Woibla are still in the process of excavation, although these two projects started a little later due to a change in their project sites.
All 7 projects have their WASH (water and sanitation/hygiene) committees established.
Once complete these 7 projects should help around 2300 Ethiopians to have clean water each day.
In the photos are Mulugeta (head of water resource department at our partner NGO), and Ato (Water4Ethiopia's local project manager based in Goncha).
Thank you for all of your kind donations, they really are making a huge difference to lives in these 7 kebele's in Ethiopia.
