Conclusion of Gouniang Pump Project – Senegal


Ethan McClelland, Peace Corps Volunteer - SenegalThis project has been successfully completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Ethan McClelland. To see the history of the project CLICK HERE.

The project was to repair the pump and restore the water supply used for irrigation in the women’s community garden.

Ethan reports:

The pump was completed by a local contractor who has lots of experience with village pumps and was a personal recommendation of the Chief of the village.

He reports on the reaction of the community:

The community is very excited about the prospects of gardening this winter. Laga Dieng, the head of the women's association in the village said:

"This pump is very important to Gouniang because it will allow our women to garden more without sacrificing our duties in the home. We are extremely grateful to the Peace Corps and the donors of this pump for their gift; it will bless the village for many years in the future."

We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this project.
