This project will construct a borehole and install a hand pumping machine. It will provide access to portable water, improve health and socioeconomic power. Thus increasing productivity for 300 villagers in Akinyele local government area of Oyo state.

The villagers survive with water from gullies and pot holes leading to series of infections and diseases. Also, the villagers are engaged in oil palm production, which needs a consistent water supply. Meanwhile, lack of portable water has led to low production in terms of quality and quantity.
