Construction of shallow wells

About This Project

In 2014 ten shallow wells were rehabilitated in six villages of Shabelle and Qorahay regions.

Local people dug the wells without proper aprons and no animal troughs and the good lining are not constructed according to the standard. The sanitation was very poor. Small children come watering used to fail down despite the wells are deep enough to harm.

The wells have constructed the lining, well head of 20cm height40 cm.  The aprons of 1.5m with reinforcement concrete are built to avoid water to drain back the well. Finally, for watering animals, two troughs are built with reinforcement concrete with different size and capacity; one camel and one for shoats.
