Connecting the Borehole to the Children's Centre

Washing dishes will soon be revolutionized.
Washing dishes will soon be revolutionized.

Makindu Children's Program borehole drilling program continues to benefit the children and staff at Makindu Children's Centre. The shamba (farm) is now being irrigated from the borehole through existing hoses and piping. As donations continue to come in, a pump and new pipes will be purchased and installed to irrigate the shamba and bring clean safe water to faucets within the Children's Centre. This valuable and precious gift of water will revolutionize the way of life at the Children's Centre making cooking and cleaning much easier and more efficient. When the project is complete, the Children's Centre will be able to sell this water to the general community thereby supplementing the income of the Centre and helping sustain the nutritional, educational and healthcare programs provided at the Centre.

Please consider another donation to Makindu to help us complete this worthy and valuable effort. Your donations truly make a HUGE difference in the lives of these orphaned and vulnerable children.

From all of us at Makindu Children's Program and Makindu Children's Centre, ASANTE SANA!!! Thank you so very much!!!

Thanks to you, we are very close to completing our borehole project. The well has been drilled and water is flowing. We are now working to purchase and install a pump and pipes to bring this precious resource from the borehole into the Makindu Children's Centre's kitchen. This will greatly aid the staff in cooking meals and cleaning up afterwards. We will also pipe water to the Centre's laundering and bathing facilities. This will be the first time the kids and staff will experience water from a faucet! We are already using the flowing water for the shamba (farm), providing water to the cows, goats and chickens as well as watering the maize (corn), beans and other vegetables. Asante Sana! (Thank you very much) for your continued support.

Makindu Borehole Hits Water!

Water brings vitality and many playful moments!
Water brings vitality and many playful moments!

The Makindu borehole drilling project finally hit water! It was a joyous moment when the water came gushing out, producing a stronger flow than we ever could have dreamed. The Makindu Children’s Centre is already using this precious resource to provide essential educational, nutritional, and medical services for over 1,200 children. With the savings that the borehole bring to the Centre, and as it becomes a public utility, MCC will be able to invest even more in programs that ensure the livelihood of the children.

Will you please donate again to guarantee the continued success of this project? We are only $3,240 away from reaching our goal. If we are able to raise these funds to build solar-powered technology for the borehole, the MCC will have an even greater ability to serve the children and the community of Makindu.

This would not have been possible without your support. Asante sana (thank you) for your contribution from the bottom of our hearts!

To view the bounteous water fountaining out of the newly drilled borehole, please visit our website at http://www.makindu.org.

It's time to celebrate! Water is life!
