VOLUNTEERING IN MANDO WATER PROJECTS

    Kenyan wellAny experience with clean water projects? Drilling boreholes or wells? Tapping springs?

    As funding permits, MANDO involves volunteers in project development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation as well as when completed, handing over the project to the community. Some activities would be:

  • gather information about a project's locale and interviews with the local notables to produce an audio or video clip (with translation) to further identify needs

  • cite pump locations, use GPS to document unique terrains

  • prepare a proposal with budget for the tools, materials and work required for a specific part of a project

  • share stories of the communities receiving project support so that donors and sponsors can learn why the need is so great

  • work on a specific task such as tank and water trough construction or fixing hand pumps

  • compiling reports on progress to MANDO and to donors and sponsors including photos, GPS coordinates and benefits to a community

  • train communities in repairing and maintaining boreholes or pumps, sanitation and hygiene practices
