wAteR WaTer wATer

The community we are working with has no water source or power. This means that we have to decide where, on the 228 acres, to lay out the birth house. We had the great opportunity to walk around the land with the sisters, with the Earth Rising Foundation and with the men who sold the land to search for the best possible place based on where water gathers, where its dry, where there is a potential to clear a road etc. At the end we decided on a general location which will soon be tested for water to find the best place to drill. This is one of our main priorities, not only to provide a clean source of water for the community using the birth house, our staff and volunteers, but also to have a water source available during the building process which will soon be needed!
