Esokota is a large community of almost 3,000 people. They have done everything they can to improve their own lives: they have built a school for the children and even a rainwater harvesting system. Unfortunately for such a large population, rainwater isn’t enough even in a good year, and it certainly is not enough if there is a drought. Their current system needed to be supplemented in order to meet the demand of all the locals. Knowing that a well was the solution, but lacking the experience and the funds to complete it, the villagers of Esokota sought help from WILK. With help from the Rotary Clubs of Sweden, we dug a shallow well on the school grounds. Now the children have water close-by, and the entire area has an ample water supply.
Currently the handpump is running well and has not run into major issues.
