HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO FUND A NEW WELL PROJECT?

THE ANSWER, OF COURSE, IS NOT SO SIMPLE.

  It depends.  It depends on a variety of economic, geographic and cultural factors, many of which are out of our control.  Some of those factors are:  
  • The economy of the country where the well is being drilled, and the cost of goods and labor there.
  • How deep we must drill before our rig reaches plentiful, clean water.  Those depths often range from 50 feet to 500 feet or more.
  • The amount of rock that we must drill through, which increases the amount of fuel and man hours required.
  • Whether the well location is in a remote location, making transportation of the rig and materials difficult.
  • The local cost of fuel, for powering the drilling rig and transporting materials to the well site.
  For example, in Honduras, the terrain is very mountainous in some areas (for example, in Tegucigalpa), making transporting the rig to the well location difficult and more costly.  Also, the rocky and steep terrain necessitate that we dig deeper wells in Honduras, which in turn leads to a longer and more expensive drilling process.   By contrast, the cost of the wells that Living Water has recently funded in Togo has been much lower than in most other countries.  Togo’s water source is much closer to the surface of the earth, requiring fewer man hours and a smaller rig to finish the job.  In addition, the community receiving the well usually provides the labor, so our cost is only for parts and supplies.   For those who are interested, here is a list of the average cost of a Water project in the various countries:  
  • Togo  $1,600
  • Niger  $2,000 - $2,500
  • Senegal  $2,000 - $2,500
  • Nicaragua  $2,000 - $7,000
  • Liberia  $2,500
  • Chad  $2,500 - $3,000
  • Guatemala  $3,000 – $15,000
  • Haiti  $5,000
  • Ghana  $5,000
  • Uganda  $5,000 – $9,000
  • Dominican Republic   $5,000 – $10,000
  • India  $5,000 – $15,000
  • Zambia  $5,500
  • Ethiopia  $6,000
  • Sierra Leone  $7,000
  • Nigeria  $8,000
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo   $8,000
  • Sudan  $10,000 – $15,000
  • Honduras  $10,000 – $18,000
  • Kenya  $10,000 – $30,000
