Conclusion of Bantanding-Tukulor Pump #1 Project - The Gambia


This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Suzanne Brewer . To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

This project was to repair the first of the hand pumps, Pump #1, in Bantanding-Tukulor.

Suzanne reports:

This project was a simple repair and the work was completed early in the day on September 6, 2010. Many of the men were not in the fields that day.

While some helped the mechanic with his work, others were clearing the grass and weeds out from around the well area. They have not been able to use this pump for a couple of years and so the vegetation was thick.

Having this pump working will ease the load at the other well. And it is good to have two sources of drinking water in a village in case one fails. In the case of this village, both pumps failed at nearly the same time.

The villagers are grateful to have this pump repaired. That day, and nearly every time I visit the village, someone will thank me for helping to find the funds to repair it.

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