Poor small family farms in the area of Kentira, Morocco need clean drinkable water for their own consumption and for their crops. The wells make these small farms much more productive and profitable. Wells are hand dug to the depth of 20 meters or more.
The problem is that there are not enough wells in the Kentira area of Morocco. Farmers must transport water for several miles to water their crops and take care of their workers and families. Because of the lack of water close by, the yield of these farms are small and not profitable or efficient.
If two hand dug wells are funded in this area, several of these farms will be able to increase the size of their crops and become profitable so they can take care of the families and workers. The clean drinkable water decreases the sickness on the people in the area because they are not drinking contaminated water. Water is also used for livestock.
The long term benefit of these wells are farmers will have more crops they can sell at market. More crops means more income for the farmers so they can take better care of their families. Also, the clean water means less people getting sick and dying. These two wells will benefit the well being and health of over 2,000 villagers.
