- Village of Damana – (PSP official visit June 2010)
A wonderful private American donor, Central Middle School Roots and Shoots, gifted the installation of a well for the village of Damana. During our visit, the children were just getting out of school and ran over to the well to greet us. There was a storm brewing so we couldn’t stay too long. It was wonderful to see this well in close proximity to the school and near the town for full accessibility to the water. Having a clean well that reaches the water table is one of PSPs primary goals for a village. Without clean water, good heath cannot be guaranteed. Once basic health needs such as access to drinking water are met, the villagers can begin to develop and secure their futures. During our visit we also accessed the other major projects needed for the village. We hope that we can continue to provide support to this village. Some of the future needs include a solar powered well pump and tap system, as well as a solar lighting installation for the school so that children can do homework at night and adult education classes can take place.
