UPDATE 12 September 2018: Since last update we have received $8,080 in donations and we have only spent $700 for the water survey report which leaves us with $7,380 in the fund to drill the well to a depth of 80 meters (at $100/meter). So, we still need to raise another $620 to complete the drilling to 80 meters. We may need more for the pump and any extra depth they have to drill to ensure the volume of water they will need for the near future... We will keep you pasted as we get feedback from the drilling company. Thank you all for your help so far.

UPDATE 3 September 2018: We received an updated quote from the drilling company yesterday. To date we have received $3,100 in donations for this well project. We spent $700 for the water survey report which leaves us with $2,400 in the fund to drill the well to a depth of 80 meters (at $100/meter). So, we still need to raise another $5,600. Thank you all for your help so far. The drought will not wait so if we are going to drill this well in time... just saying.

UPDATE 30 August 2018: We only have $1,800 of the estimated $7,000 we need to drill the well. So, we still need at least $5,200 more. As soon as we get the formal drilling rate per meter we will update this again.

UPDATE 22 Aug 2018: We just received the water survey report from the licensed geologist there. The report does indicate that the best place to drill will be at "B" BUT it also says that other shallow hand-drilled well tests in the area have had extremely high percents of fluoride in the water making it unfit for consumption. This well site is proposed to be to a depth of 80 meters but the water quality is still an unknown. Download the water survey report here:

UPDATE 21 Aug 2018: We have received donations of $1,790 as of 21 Aug 2018. We sent $700 to Tanzania for the well survey which is completed. We should receive the report this week. After that we need to raise at least another $7,000 urgently to hire the drilling company down there. -Stan Deyo

After returning from our safari to Tanzania in May of 2018 to locate the real Garden of Eden, my partners and I decided to raise money for about 350 families in the area of Sakila near Arusha. We made friends with two men who were very helpful in taking us to the remote places we needed to reach in the Ngorongoro highlands. In the course of traveling with them we discovered that their villages which are next to each other needed more water as the drought has taken so much from existing water wells or other natural water sources.

They have to cart a minimum of 10 gallons of water by hand, by burro or by some sort of vehicle every day for each household.

The current conditions are driving them farther from home to just get enough water for cooking, sanitation and drinking. Water is as precious as gold there.

So we have contacted a water surveying company, a water pipe supplier, several pump companies and a couple of drilling companies to get quotes to do the job. So far it looks like the survey will cost $600 and the drilling as high as $8,000 (we are not sure whether the pump cost is in addition to drilling costs but if it is we will need another $1,500). It also depends on how deep we need to drill at the location where 1 mile of pipe has already been laid to a parcel of land owned by our two friends.

Helping people who are already putting their own money and muscle into this project is just something we feel compelled to do.
