The Gift of
WATER
Villages of Hope Africa utilizes the gift of clean water as a testimony to the power of God as we seek some of the most desperate people and villages in need of a clean water source. On initial contact, our team engages the village in praying that God will provide clean water in the form of a well. As God moves and supplies the resources for a well, villagers experience God move upon their lives in a personal way. For VOHA, the pumping of clean water is the first step in the process of leading the village to the spiritual water of Jesus Christ.
The borehole is not free to the community. Each village is required to provide all available local materials needed for the completion of the well. These include sand, which is carried from long distances, cracking rock to be mixed with the concrete, bricks made by hand, laborers, and meals for the drilling crew.

VOHA teaches and trains the village about sanitation to help prevent illness, while partnering with a local drilling team in order to drill deep boreholes.
The drilling begins. The sound of generators takes over the typically silent village. Children watch with wide eyes and smiles as they experience history being made in their young lives. Women are thinking about the long walks to the dirty water source that for years has been at best, disappointing.

They know that their children will be healthier. Excitement fills the air as the village men work side by side the drill team.
