Some perspective on water volumes

Here is a bit of perspective to help you relate to the water flow from the Ndandini well.
The Kenyan government has a target basic level of 25 litres of water per person per day. Many live today with much less. One person we spoke with scooping water from the river at Ndandini told us that the 40 litres she had just scooped would serve the 7 people in her family for one day (less than 6 litres/person/day).
If the well produced 10000 litres/hour and the pump ran for 8 hours/day then the 80000 litres pumped could provide 25 litres for each of 3200 people every day.

You have provided a fantastic potential benefit to so many people!
Thanks again for your support and generousity.
