Well-Digging Has Begun

20071106_sudan_jpf_lainya_borehole_  JEN started well-digging operations in Lainya County on November 6th.

That day, the latest model excavator, owned by a Kenyan vendor, arrived at the target school: Loka Round Elementary School. Excavation was started at the point that had been assigned and checked by the management committee.20071106_sudan_jpf_lainya_borehol_2

With the local people and students watching, water was found on the very first day of excavation, and everyone cheered!  Tests will be conducted to determine whether enough water can be drawn from the well, and hand-pumps will be installed if the results are good.
