In December of 2015, four LPGA professionals visited Africa with Betsy King to see the work Golf Fore Africa is doing to bring clean water and sanitation to rural villages in Zambia. LPGA pros Amy Anderson, Cheyenne Woods, Kendall Dye and Kristy McPherson spent 4 days in villages dedicating new wells and witnessing the drilling of a new borehole.
In one village they saw a mechanized water system installed by World Vision that was supplying water to a health facility, school, marketplace, churches, and all the homes in the community. The system included an elevated water tank, underground pipes and 47 water points (faucets). Solar panels generate energy from the sun to pull water from the pump, up into storage tanks, allowing gravity to feed water to the water points located throughout the community. This mechanized system was bringing clean water to 10,000 people. The cost of this mechanized system was $50,000.
