Tomegbe Well Photos

These recent photos are from the village of Tomegbe, just down the dirt road a mile or so from the village of Game, where I was a Peace Corps Volunteer.

Tomegbe is a village of approximate 200 people who traditionally get their water from a stream nearby.  The water is transported on foot, usually by women and girls, and is very labor intensive and time consuming. 
The village will greatly benefit from having this clean water source nearby.

The hard work of digging a well.

Digging was particularly difficult because of the hard laterite soil.

Diggers abandoned the first site to start over at a different location.

Many many thanks for your continued contributions to the Togo Well Project.
