Our Water Well
Our water well in the Village of May-Ela/Tslantsi, in the Tigray region of Ethiopia is complete! It can be seen at GPS coordinates: 14.1512 39.7815.
Each day, the May-Ela/Tslantsi Water Well provides clean, safe water to more than 250 people. The community participated in the construction and implementation of this well and has taken full ownership of the project. A water committee, selected by the community itself, maintains the water point and ensures that it is being properly used. They also ensure that the community-built fence and door stay operational to protect the well from animals and vandalism. The committee, along with the rest of the community, works hard to make sure that the well is sustainable and will provide clean water for many years.
