Two Volunteers are helping communities across Senegal install 52 water pumps over the course of a year. In August, they began installing the “rope pumps,” which use a simple, appropriate technology that accelerates the process of pulling water out of wells. The pumps also relieve congestion around wells in local villages and give people access to more water.
