Wells for Senegal

Ex-pupil and lunchtime supervisor Fernando Manzanares has been heavily involved in the Wells for Senegal project, supported by the school.  He recently updated us on the progress of this project which is making a significant positive impact in the region.

LES donated the sum of €1,833 which was raised through our Carnaval on the Cumbre event and these funds were used to start construction of 2 wells which will make a huge difference to the village of Guede Chantier in Guese Diery, giving access to clean water to hundreds of people.

A third well is already being planned close to Gourel Diery, which will not only service the local community but also cattle which are a valuable source of income for the locals.

The wells are built by REDES organization, of which Fernando was made ambassador after his travels in Senegal. They are based in Guede Chantier, near Podor, in the Saint Louise Region. REDES operates in the Sahel, a region of Africa challenged by desertification caused by deforestation and climate change.
REDES is committed to playing an active role in providing relevant solutions to the complex environmental and socio-economic challenges that the communities of the region face in their daily lives.
