Sinking of a borehole with a solar pump
Zambia – Nov 2022

The success and final outcome of this project required a lot of cooperation, encouragement, guidance and assistance from many people and we are extremely privileged to have got this all along the completion of this project.

We are thankful to Beit Trust for the financial support and logistical support and for providing necessary guidance concerning project implementation.

Thanks to all stakeholders who helped directly or indirectly towards the completion of this project and for playing an important role in the development of this project.

St. Mary’s Girls’ Secondary School, situated in Kawambwa District of Luapula Province, in Mansa Diocese, was built in the early years of 1960s and due to its old age, the water supply system has deteriorated. For some time the school depended on the hand pump situated inside the school boarding and the girls depended on the same hand pump to fetch water for drinking, bathing and washing.

The learners used to report late for school programs because of the long queues at the only borehole that the school had. Fortunately, Beit Trust came to the rescue of the school and gave a grant of K 215,702.60, (£10,300).


  • To promote school health and easily accessible water supply.
  • For maintaining the school surrounding and the school garden.
  • Saves time and effort in fetching water.
  • To provide a reliable and cost effective means of supplying water for use in school.
  • The borehole has helped to reduce on issues of girls washing and bathing from outside.

The grant received has enabled us to replace some old water pipes in one of the ablution block. Therefore, your assistance to sink a borehole for our girls has enabled the school to create a more conducive environment for our girl child in school.

We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude for this work of charity to you. We further look forward to more of such gestures of helping us and shall ensure the donations received are utilised as intended.
