Update on BCH sponsored bore well water scheme in Africa
Welcome to 2021 my read.cash and BCH friends. This is my first article here for 2021, and it’s starting with good news about BCH, BCH community, and life saving testimonies.
Last year 2020, I posted a lot here based on my daily life experience and activities from Africa where I am; merging from my farming activities to my entrepreneurial engagements. I also posted some challenges facing us here in Africa especially from my locality; water. Water has been our outermost need in my community. I brought the problem to blockchain, web3, DeFi and crypto space for succor since I couldn’t get any help from my centralized surroundings.
I persistently pursue that plan to see if I could get help from communities that I belong to in crypto space.
I received an unprecedented help from my BCH friends who cheered me up on my plan to solve the problem of water for my family, neighborhood, and for my community through a bore well method. Thanks to @Koush who supported me with advice and on getting a business plan ready which can be shared around the world for help. I needed around $3000 loan or grant for the project which the business plan has it’s comprehensive bits and details:
I was out of this world when @emergent_reasons showed up with a loan of $3000 for my bore well water scheme in Africa! I’m grateful to God for sending help through BCH community. I’m also in other crypto communities but non paid attention to my project like Bitcoin Cash community did.
I’m glad to provide the update of the bore well project here at read.cash. I just need one thing from you; please help me to get this article go viral everywhere; on Twitter and other social media so that the world may see what BCH community is doing in making our world livable for everyone. Thanks again to @emergent_reasons for coming to my aid.
We started the bore well on the first day of January 2021, this is happening at my purchased plot of land in Ugwogo community where I also build a little shelter for my family.
This is the only way to get water for humans, livestock and for vegetation in my geographical spot. Another way of getting natural water is from rain 🌧 which doesn’t help much when drought and dry seasons comes.
First day of digging was tough for the workers, our soil has up to 50% of gravel and stones. But gradually they will pass this upper layer to another different layer.
The company handling this bore well sent professional diggers to my site and they’re able to get several meters down the ground the first day.
This is huge! Considering the hardness of the soil, they supposed not to have gotten to 6ft down, but they did anyway. Here in my remote community, they’re yet to get some modern equipment that helps in digging bore wells faster.
most people still uses old African methods of digging.
I made a provision to utilize all the sand coming out from the bore well by raising the foundation of my BCH proposed house. This apartment will serve as my multi workshop for training my community in everything Crypto; BCH and web3 in general. It’l also serve as a hub for my entrepreneurship training by which my community can be involved in modernizing their agricultural activities; blending them with crypto. Maybe from there, they can form a kind of community banking also. They can also form a kind of cooperative that may lead them in exporting their agricultural products.
I don’t have funds for this house now anyway, but I managed to source some funds from my well project money just to raise it’s foundation so that I can utilize my bore well sand for it’s filling.
Now that the foundation is ready, I’m taking all those clay soil and gravels to fill it up. This process will take time to accomplish.
No labor hired for this; I’m just doing the filling by myself.
I have other updates to bring soon on other things associated to the water project like the building of overhead tank stand and the underground reservoir which will commence after the bore well is completed.
We are looking at a quarter for the completion of this project.
Thanks for reading through, and thanks for supporting us. Happy new year.
