Peggy, I'm not sure what advice you are seeking other than finance for installing a borehole. I would agree with the suggestion that you approach Engineers Without Borders to see if you can get technical support from them for this project. There are local drilling contractors in Sierra Leone who will be able to survey the area and drill but I would advise that you use a qualified engineer/hydrogeologist to lead and supervise this to ensure that money isn't wasted drilling in dry areas and that the borehole is developed effectively. In the meantime I will pass on your 'question' to a few contacts. Kind regards Harriette
