Solar Panels in the Middle of Nowhere? About the WorldServe Drilling Process

In 2001, WorldServe International identified a need in rural East Africa. Not many companies or organizations were focused on these hard to reach communities that were suffering the most from a lack of access to clean water. We’ve watched the technology grow and change through the years, but our mission has remained the same: Give Africa our best!

Becoming more efficient and specialized with our process, equipment and implementation has been a game-changer. For instance, hand pump technology was popular in the early 2000’s, allowing each site to serve about 400 – 500 people at a time. We now know that our sites, if equipped with deep boreholes and solar-powered distribution systems can serve anywhere from 5,000 – 7,000 people at a time. Plus, it’s a simple as turning the faucet for these families!

Take a look at this infographic to learn more about our site selection process and the steps we take to ensure these sites provide water to generations to come!

NBA Legend & Analyst, Charles Barkley pledges $45,000 to fund clean water in East Africa.

Our friend, Malcolm Brogdon was interviewed by the crew at NBA on TNT during an NBA playoff game and the results were about more than just basketball! While sharing about his return from injury with the panel, Brogdon was asked about his work with Chris Long and Hoops2o. NBA legend and now TNT analyst, Charles Barkley immediately stepped in, asked how much it is to fund a clean water system in East Africa and quickly pledged $45,000 towards a “Chuck” well.

We’re unbelievably proud of Malcolm and his passion to make this world a better place! As the implementing partner for the Hoops2o & Waterboys initiatives, we’re giving a big congratulations to the team for funding yet another solar-powered well that will reach people who have never received clean water before. Keep up the good work and thank you Charles Barkley and TNT for your support of tackling the clean water crisis in East Africa!

Tanzania Water Fund

The Tanzania Water Fund is based in Phoenix Arizona and has been funding wells in Singida, Tanzania for over 15 years.  Ten years ago, TWF and WorldServe forged a partnership for mutual funding of water projects in this region because of the severity of the need for clean water.  Since then, TWF has partnered on over 35 clean water projects and intends to continue partnering with us to accomplish its mission: to solve the water problem in Singida by seeing that a deep well, power source and storage tank is provided to each village in the district. Dean Riesen, Chairman of Tanzania Water Fund, also serves as a board member of WorldServe International.
