After the celebrations, the hard work begins.
Everyone enjoys celebrations – and what could be a greater cause for celebration than gaining access to clean water for the first time in your community’s history?
The “opening” of a new well ushers in tremendous improvements and transformations in a community, and it is an occasion that involves much ceremony and celebration.
But the celebration day is only one moment in time. The most important days are those leading up to the event and those that follow it.
While it often only takes a few days between when the drilling rig appears and the new water point is in place, many months of preparation go into establishing a sustainable water project in a community.
