Help African Drill Teams Create Sustainable Businesses

WHOlives is proud to announce the creation of a perpetual fund designed to help African based drill teams create and maintain their own sustainable water well drilling business using the Village Drill.  Following up on the success of our innovative Community Funded Well Program, WHOlives will make grants and interest free loans available to local drill teams who lack the capital needed to start their own business.

In 2020 WHOlives launched the pilot program in Uganda and Kenya with great success.  A drill team in Kenya received a grant for a Village Drill and a team in Uganda received a partial grant and an interest free loan.   Both teams are off to a great start averaging 2-3 new wells each month!  We are pleased to announce, that so far,  the team in Uganda has made all of their loan payments on time!

All across the developing world people suffer because they lack access to clean water.  The traditional method of drilling wells using a big rig drilling truck has two main limitations.  First, it is just too expensive for most communities and second, because the majority of remote villages are located well off of improved roads, they are not accessible to the big rig truck.  Using the remarkable Village Drill, these new drill teams will be able to drill a borehole in 75% more locations for up to 75% less cost than a big rig truck.  It’s win, win for the drill team and the community.

With your generous support, WHOlives will be able to provide equipment, training and support to local drillers as they form their own for profit drilling business.  We believe this model of local ownership and investment in people will  help many drillers lift themselves out of poverty while at the same time bringing clean water to their communities at an affordable price.  This truly sustainable model will help to end the cycle of dependency and poverty.

Please join us as we work to end the world water crisis in a sustainable way.
