Big Rigs and Bumpy Roads

Sometimes, Getting to the Drilling Site is an Adventure

Burundi is on the steep side of the Great Rift Valley, a chain of mountains and high plateaus. The drilling team travels across all kinds of terrain to get to where water is most needed. Schedules are planned around the rainy season when roads are not passable.

Pictured here is a bridge made of logs that was hard for the rigs to cross.

Muddy Hands, Clean Water

Getting Dirty So Others Can Get Clean

Amazi Water is about more than ‘just’ installing wells – we are committed to physical and spiritual transformation. This includes the development of skills for people from the local community. We employ and train local people whose expertise rapidly develops.

Joy rises in employees and community members alike when fresh water surfaces for the first time – even if that means getting a little muddy. Everyone witnessing the event knows it means a lifetime source of safe, clean water for people who previously did not have it.
