About the Project

A successful borehole was drilled at Mwenja Comprehensive in about 2020 by an unknown NGO, with an array of solar panels mounted on an elevated stand. The well was capped and never completed. The early indication was that the well has sufficient quality and quantity of water to serve the purpose. Adding a solar pump and extracting enough water to provide for the community made the project a success.


The new borehole is now complete, providing a water source for the school and community.

Water is pumped from the ground, using the electricity generated from solar panels.

Piping being lowered into the borehole by Solar World.

Capped well at the school.
