Water Tank for Kilolero Parish, Tanzania: Phase 2

Project Leader:

Reverend Nikas Kiuko

In early September Kilolero Parish in Tanzania completed drilling the borehole but costs were more than expected and the well is too deep for a mechanical hand pump. The dry season is now at crisis level and the parish and school are closed. Fr Kiuko cannot live at the Parish and must travel 60 km to offer Sunday Mass to those few who are able to attend. Your donations will provide the 10,000-liter water tank, electric well pump and other items to complete the project. The water tank will serve 500 households including a school for 700 children.



of $3,500 raised

  • $500 Will purchase the submersible electric well pump
  • $1,000 Will purchase a 10,000 liter water tank

After some unavoidable delays all materials had arrived last week and the electric pump and piping was installed. Father Kiuko is at the hose in the first picture. Many parishioners and neighbors came out to celebrate. The pile of bricks was a local donation to build the foundation to hold the two water tanks. In the final picture we see the brick mason hard at work. Thank you, dear reader of this post, for your interest and your prayers.
