A Well Inauguration

The people of Pot 15 applaud with the joy for the well [that they now have] after three months of training to ensure that the well has a future. For several years residents had to go to neighboring communities for a drop of water. During the [well] inauguration ceremony one of the members of the water committee declared, “by the grace of the managing training they received they will save money to repair the pump when it breaks down; and in the name of the [water] committee I say thank you to Water.org and Haiti Outreach who have saved us from having to go to our neighbors for water.”
