Drilling a tubewell

In this clip, four men from the Deowanbari slum in Bangladesh drill a deep tube well, tapping into clean water 300 feet below ground. The result: 15 families will have access to clean water for the first time!

Community involvement is at the heart of what we do. Success and sustainability is in the hands of the people themselves.
