Borehole in Kalera
Sunday 18 October KIPAY drilled a 61 meters deep borehole in Kalera.
Water is a resource that belongs to the community. Without clean water, the possibility of breaking out of the cycle of poverty is incredibly slim. Currently, the closest drinking water source in Kalera is 7 km from away from the village.
The exact location for the borehole was identified in dialogue with the community, local authorities and the traditional chief in Kalera.
A traditional ceremony was hold before the drilling started Sunday 18 October.
The next step will be to install a panel solar pump by the end of October 2020.
The water well belongs to the community in Kalera. KIPAY will provide sustainable tools and microfinancing training for managing and maintaining the pump. A committee will be established to manage the water pump on behalf of the local community. The profit this pump generates will be used to develop the village based on participative decision-making.
