OUTBACK ENERGY SYSTEMS JOINS FORCES WITH THE COMMUNITY
OF TOUBAB DIALAW TO BRING CLEAN WATER, JOBS
& FOOD SECURITY
Cape Town South Africa, July 2016
Sustainable technology services company Outback Energy Systems and ReGen Africa
announce the commencement of the Community Clean Water Now Project in partnership
with Global Vision Cultural Center and a host of local community groups, to bring potable
water to Toubab Dialaw a small coastal town 40 km from capital city Dakar in Senegal
The campaign is aimed at bringing awareness and support for the installation of five new
water wells that will provide thousands of liters of safe, reliable clean water to the
community. Current water conditions in much of Senegal has reached crisis stage due
to the impacts of climate change which has led increased severe weather and drought
The five new fully cased wells will be strategically located within easy walking distance for
most inhabitants who currently must walk several hours each day to locate water which
often contaminated, brackish and dangerous. 50% of all hospital admissions are from
Outback Energy Systems revolutionary new drilling technology which now makes it possible
to develop and install productive high yield water wells within a fraction of the time and
costs of traditional methods will be deployed on the project. In addition, the wells will be
equipped with solar powered pumps and bio/carbon filtration to ensure sustainable supplies
The Toubab Dialaw Community Clean Water Project Toubab Dialaw represents a starting
point in the creation of innovative network of decentralized community owned, operated and
managed water services. The partnership anticipates that this approach offers an entirely
new model for sustainable water resource management across Senegal and water scarce
regions across Africa.
Sustainability is about more than just installing wells...
Real sustainability is based on the training and empowerment of local communities to own,
operated and manage their resources themselves. Outback Energy is forming a partnership
with ISETA (Institute of Higher Applied Technology Studies) to offer training in all key
aspects of sustainable water well development and construction.
Hands-on training will equip students with in depth knowledge of extraction and storage
practices. Practical drilling rig mechanics and solar/electrical equipment maintenance. In
addition courses will be offered to provide students practical management skills required for
optimum water resource management.
Outback Energy Systems and it's partners will shortly launch an international crowd funding
campaign to raise USD$25,000 required to complete funding of remaining construction
materials, local labor, sample testing and educational materials.
