Today I received an email from Ariane containing pictures of the first Amman Imman borehole! Ariane writes:
My research assistant went to the Azawak and took some photos of our first borehole. The quality of the photos isn't super, but it shows the conditions, which we hope to improve vastly with our cistern and solar panels, as well as faucets and basins for the livestock.
Photos 1 and 2 show the children and men at the base of the borehole with their water jugs. In the background you can see a small cistern and a shelter for the diesel pumping system. In photo 3 you can see the base of the borehole, the cistern, and the shelter.
My departure with Denis is scheduled for March 1st. We had a small setback because of the war in Guinea Conakry, which took away plane availability.
Enjoy the photos!!
