Getting Set Up For The Water Well
We have many machines in place to support the drilling of the well. A truck holds drilling rods. A trailer transports the huge slurry pump. A truck to transport water, bentonite, sand, and gravel is nearby.
Every Mano a Mano Project is a Partnership
Every Mano a Mano project is a partnership; this water well project is a collaboration between the community of Pampa Grande, our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Nuevo Mundo, Mano a Mano International Partners, and the many Rotary clubs that have provided funding for this project (the primary Rotary Clubs involved with this water well project are the Lake Minnetonka Excelsior Rotary Club and Rotary Club Cochabamba Norte, in addition to many additional collaborating clubs in the Twin Cities area).
