Watch how quickly the Village Drill can be assembled

The Village Drill takes less than two hours to set up in the field. Assembly was even quicker when we set up a demonstration at the Salt Lake Home Expo in Utah.

Watch this 50-second time-lapse video of operations director Mike Anderson and the WHOlives team putting together the revolutionary drill.

Mike will be showing off the technology at the AidEx Nairobi conference on June 14 and 15, 2023. The event is focused on aid and development within Africa.

Our drill does what a big drilling rig can’t. We can reach the villages with the most desperate need because those big trucks can’t travel off improved roads.

The Village Drill fits in the back of a small truck and is made with U.S. steel. It’s helping to solve the world’s water crisis. The World Health Organization reports 2.2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services. 

WHOlives is also unique in how projects are funded. We don’t give away drills or wells like many NGOs, but we do coordinate financing for drill crews and communities in need so that everyone benefits.
