Interview on water problems in
Toubab Dialaw, Senegal
|Senegal TV interview 2015
|Open hand dug wells are not the answer to clean
drinkable water, in fact animals like mice and birds
can fall in and drown. This causes sickness and
death. Our solutions are simple and sustainable for
clean healthy water. In my travels across Senegal,
this was a common practice.
|I took this shot while I spent a month in
Senegal, open well in use
Here is a 200 foot well I drilled next to the
solar pressure switch and this keeps a
3,000 gallon cistern filled with water. As
you can see, the line is bellow ground and
the well is capped and animal proof!
Because the well is deep, the water is not
subject to dirty shallow surface water. The
pump and system is simple and easy to
service. Fresh water is available 24 hours
a day 7 days a week. This well has been in
service for over 10 years problem free.
|We wish to thank our partners below in putting an end to this disaster through
spreading the word, and making usable contributions to this effort to end the crisis.
|Thank You for
making a difference!
|Our mission statement
Our goal is to raise $20,000 to cover all necessary costs
for the water project including construction materials,
local labor, sample testing and training for local
maintenance staff. This amount is less than 75% of the
total costs which will be covered by donations. So every
cent of your donation will go directly to build and install
the wells. The drill rig will be left with a local trained crew.
Global Vision in partnership with Outback Energy Systems,
ReGen Africa and the community of Toubab Dialaw will
install five new water wells to provide clean potable
water. The drilling technology developed by Outback
Energy is a revolutionary new system specifically
designed for developing world conditions that results in a
greater number of wells can be built and brought online.
|To install new water
resources capable of serving
several thousand people on a
daily basis. To ensure clean
water is available and the
within short walking distances
of all members of the
community. Providing pure life
giving water is about more
than just installing wells...
Ultimately, it's about
sustainability, which means
empowering the community to
run,manage and own their
water supply. Training and
ongoing support will be
provided, resulting in skills
development, jobs improved
health and food security.
Our aim is to dramatically
improve the quality, health
and well being of all members
of Toubab Dialaw.
|We would like to thank the media for
their video's, interviews and links for
their efforts in bringing this
knowledge of the problems of this
wonderful people of this town. I
personally visited this community of
Toubab Dialaw and spend some time
there before there was a water crisis.
My heart goes out to this people, they
have treated me as family. They do
the same for everyone. Please review
this page, and understand how
together we can make this happen,
you can play a part in the solution!
|What We Need
As you know Your support goes directly toward the
construction and installation of 5 water wells complete with
pumps and water reservoir in the community of Toubab Dialaw.
Our goal of $25,000 covers all necessary costs for the water
project including construction materials, local labor, sample
testing and training for local maintenance staff. This amount is
less than 75% of the total costs which will be covered by our
partners. So every cent of your donations will go directly to
build and install the wells.
Toubab Dialaw represents a starting point in the
creation of innovative network of decentralized
community owned, operated and managed water
services. We believe this approach can birth an
entirely new model for sustainable water
resource management across Senegal. Even
more, your donation will be an investment in the
future of high impact aid.
