2014 and Looking Forward to 2015

Clean Water!

This fall, Staff of Hope’s drill rig turned west leaving the paved roads near the small town of Namanga and drove off road for many hours. After arriving at the drill location, our team turned on the drill rig, the drill bit began to rotate and push deep into the dusty earth of Africa. Our drill hit water! Lots of clean water was found deep within the earth!

The community of that drill site has a population of about 4,000 people plus their livestock. The people in this area have never farmed before. As this letter is being written, 2 new farms are now preparing to receive water from the well we drilled. We will also pipe water to our medical clinic. People will soon be able to take clean water directly from the well back to their families. We are building a trough for cows and a separate trough for goats. This area is being completely transformed thanks to the generous donations from Staff of Hope’s donors.

Education is key for people to grow and become self-sufficient. Oloile Secondary School, founded by Staff of Hope, strives to provide quality education for success in the present and future.
