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

What your donation can do!

  • $10 Will help purchase PVC pipe
  • $20 Will help with labor costs
  • $100 Will help purchase the generator
  • $500 Will purchase the submersible electric well pump
  • $1,000 Will purchase a 10,000 liter water tank

Greetings friends and benefactors. With the generosity of our Phase 2 benefactor our well is fully functional and serving our community. Prices had increased again and we were only able to afford a lower horsepower water pump that serves us while the water level is high during our wet season. Later this summer our water level will drop and the pump will not work. Missio has permitted us to request a Phase 3 for a stronger water pump and additional water pipe to carry the water to two additional water stations each 4 kilometers from the parish and increase the number of people we can serve. Please watch for Phase 3 to be published and help us continue to serve these wonderful people. May God bless you for your generosity. You are in our prayers.

I have a question, how will you share the water with the village 4 km away?

Volunteers from the community will dig a trench and lay water pipe to the distant villages. Some pipe will come from Phase 3 donations and some will be donated by people in the community. Thank you for your question.

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.
