The well has been successfully drilled and we are currently developing it. Pump is installed and the concrete pad goes in today. Hurray! It is pumping clean water and we have tested it for many water quality constituents. Will need to wait 24 - 48 hours for bacteria analysis, but it is looking good so far.

Water hygiene education program is going very well. The Council Member in charge of sanitation and hygiene is so excited about the materials that I brought to share. He has been going to the radio station to announce more workshops and so the information dissemination is really taking off.

We have been having trouble using internet. There have been many power outages and then problems with the computers and network.

On Wednesday, we will begin our multi-leg journey home. Can't wait to return, but am happy about a successful trip.

Much love to all,
