In 2001, a borehole was constructed in Pindani village. However it was vandalised five years later by thieves, making it impossible for the residents to repair the borehole, as the cost was too expensive. The 332 villagers at Pindani were left with no source of safe water, so they resorted to drawing water from unprotected shallow wells, which left them continually at a risk of diarrhoeal related diseases. During the rainy season, the unprotected shallow well that villagers collected water from would become filthy and harbour bacterium that further increased people’s vulnerability to infections.
In 2018, Brewgooder was given the opportunity to support the funding of a brand new installation at Pindani Village, helping to restore consistent water access for the first time in 12 years. The Brewgooder team were fortunate enough to be at Pindani village for the unveiling of the new water system and the celebration was incredible. Life for the 332 residents has been made far more productive, with the rapid development of the surrounding community since the water point was installed. We hope to return to Pindani in the future to discover the further progress that has been made since.
