Saving lives with safe water since 2008

Shallow Well Tool Donated to Ghana, Africa

We have experimented with a tool to dig shallow wells by hand.  The attached picture taken in Kenya illustrates its simplicity.  It is portable and only requires manpower to dig. The tool will work in many areas of Africa where the water table is high and the soil appropriate.  Our vision is to teach the use of the tool and then give it to trained nationals equipping them to dig wells.  The tool can be duplicated, manufactured and repaired abroad.

This tool has been given to a ministry in Ghana, Africa with the capabilities to fulfill this vision.
