For those who’ve been with us over the years, you know it has been our goal since we opened the CWC to have our own borehole and a source of water that we can call our own. This year in association with the Rees Jones Foundation we were able to find a plot of land and begin drilling to get our own source of water. Here is a brief rundown of our journey and our progress up to December 2023.
WATER PROJECT IMPACT
- Over 150 men and women were engaged in digging the trench from the land to the campus for 21 days.
- The distance is roughly 11 Kilometers.
- We are receiving 96000 Liters in a day which is pumped on site by solar.
- The water got to Ubuntu Campus on 30th September 2023.
Since we acquired a steady stream of water we have been able to rejuvenize our farming project.
GOAL FOR 2024
The goal is to take the water through a purification system. With this the water will be fit for consumption, farming and usage in the Children Wellness Center.
