The local contracted, UK managed, drilling team can drill a borehole for approximately £1,600. Other contractors in Africa can charge anywhere between £4,000 and £35,000, siting problems with geology, depth and location to push the price up. Drilling forms a large component of the overall cost of any rural water supply system and yet is ignored by many aid agencies, it is one area where corruption and lack of transparency means ridiculous fees are charged by unscrupulous drillers – and everyone else takes their cut. We guarantee all money donated will pay for the drilling. The boreholes will be professionally drilled and sustainable.
