Hi, we're the Engineered Water Solutions team at LeTourneau University.
We’ve spent the last year designing a solution for water scarcity in Poundioum, a village in Senegal.
Currently, most wells in Senegal are dug with shovels from inside the hole. These wells are dangerous to dig and are too shallow to provide enough water for farmers to water their crops
Our solution is simple:
We’re making tools to drill deep wells in an affordable and sustainable way.
In August, we’re going to Senegal to build our drill and pump system for the farmers who need it.
We need your help.
We still need about $1,350 to make the final drill and pump system in Senegal.
We also need three plane tickets to get EWS team members to Senegal, which adds up to $6,000 more. To donate frequent flyer miles, contact JohnMullen@letu.edu.
Thank you for your support!

Sledging head: $30-40
Bicycle pumping system: $750
