With more than half of the needed funds collected, we are delighetd to announce the beginning of the works to bring clean water in the village of Dodougou, in Burkina Faso. The works will be done in two steps: 1) water siting (determining where to drill) and drilling; 2) Volanta pump installation and related buildings The first part of the process (1) need to be done before the rain season begins (end of May), as in the rainy season would be impossible to drill a 100mt deep borehole. For this reason, Guardavanti has already transferred the funds in order for the contracted company to start with phase 1 immediately.
Phase 2 can be done in any season, therefore it will start upon finishing phase 1 and when the total amount needed willl be completely funded.
Photos about phase 1 will be uploaded on the next report, in few weeks time!
In the meanwhile, the photos attached show a typical borehole drilling - so you have an idea what will be done in the next weeks!
Thanks to all of you who made this happening! Please continue to follow us and to support the villagers of Dodougou!
