Pomerini is a remote village in the Kilolo District of Iringa. In this district access to clean, water is severely limited. Some villages have no access to safe water or are more than three miles from any water source. During the time the Plymouth Group was in Pomerini we worked to fund repairs for a pump and to install and repair broken pipes that provide river water to several areas of the village. While this system provides a modicum of water the quality of this river water is not good.

Bob Ahearn, who led the Plymouth Mission Trip in 2007, has long been aware of this problem. Bob and Ron Reed, Bob’s long friend and colleague have worked in Tanzania for more than 10 years. Over the past three years, Ron has begun to drill wells in the region to meet this long standing problem. Working with a local NGO, the Iringa Development for Youth and Disabled Children, Ron has recruited technicians and trained groups of young people to work in teams using multiple drilling rigs. To date, Plymouth Church has funded the installation of over 40 wells throughout in Pommern and the surrounding region. Yet the need for more wells is great. Forty out of the eighty villages in the district are in need of wells.

While drilling wells is one of the most efficient and economical ways to secure clean water, the costs still place a strain on the local economy. A completed well costs approximately $3,000. Individuals or organizations who wish to finance a local well can make a huge difference in the quality of life in a community.

If you or your organization would like to sponsor a well or provide resources to support the village of Pommern in other ways please click on our Donate page. For more information about our project contact Rob Schadt, rschadt@bu.edu
