05.04.2019 – We are very pleased to announce that, following our first request for a contribution to the Patronage Funds of the Services Industriels de Genève (SIG), financial support has been awarded to us. This sum will enable us to launch the first stage of our project, namely the preliminary drilling near Giteranyi. The latter should confirm the results of the hydrogeological studies carried out by our on-site geologist, Dr. Bakundukize, in order to provide us with the necessary information concerning the location of potential water points:
- The depth of the water table
- The quantity of water available
- The characteristics of the water reservoir (permeability)
- The potability following chemical water analyses
Once we have obtained all these essential data, we will be able to choose the appropriate photovoltaic installations for the water pump and then proceed with the development of the distribution system up to the village (2km).
We would like to thank GIS for their support of our project and look forward to beginning the next phase of this human adventure.
It is thanks to their participation and to your donations that we are getting closer to the goal of a more united world.
