Report: Update on clean water project in Ethiopia

Information provided by our partner Charity:Water



  • Country: Ethiopia
  • Region: Tigray
  • Project Type: Drilled Well
  • Estimated People Served: 250
  • Implementing Partner: A Glimmer of Hope
  • Status: In Progress
  • Estimated Completion: Summer 2015


A professional team uses a drilling rig to tap into an underground aquifer, then caps the well with a hand or foot pump. These deep wells typically supply more water than hand-dug wells, but the projects are more expensive as they require heavy equipment, fuel and larger teams of skilled technicians!


Our local partner will form and train a local Water and Sanitation Committee (WATSAN) on best sanitation (use of latrines), hygienic practices, safe water storage and water point management. These efforts instill a sense of ownership and responsibility for the project.


The water project you funded at the end of 2013 is now in the construction and community engagement phase. Here’s a summary of the progress made so far. We’re excited to share the exact details of your project with you once it’s completed!
