The Harmattan winds are blowing down from the north and the dry season continues in Togo. This is the time of year to begin a new well and the people of Tomegbe have been busy the last few months collecting sand for the bricks that will line the walls.
Walking long distances with cuvettes of sand on their heads, a pile of sand is dumped near the well site.
With the gracious contributions of Art Camp parents, family, friends and collectors of my ceramic birds and bowls, we were able to wire $4,000 for the construction of this well. This is the 5th well funded by the Togo Well Project. Many thanks to all who are helping bring clean water to this village!
