Shown at 6th RWSN Forum, Kampala, 2011
The video presents a manual drilling technique that has been introduced in the Casamance region of Senegal with funding from USAID. It was developed by EnterpriseWorks/VITA staff based on experiences in Niger, Nigeria and Senegal. The film shows the tooling and all of the steps required to install a 25-30 meter deep well in one to two days using a rotary jetting method.
There are 11 private drilling companies that have purchased the tools and are using the technique to drill wells for the USAID/PEPAM Project, UNICEF and private individuals. Since the training in 2010 these enterprises have installed 140 wells.
