Constructing a Drill Bit for Water Well Drilling Using the Baptist Method

In Guatemala, 2 people dig wells in two or three days, depending on depth. I've seen it done. What is the daily wage in Zanzibar? If it's like Guatemala, people make $50.00 to $100.00 per month (50 cents to $1.00 per hour). I don't do anything to upset the "going rate." I do help with educational and medical expenses, but paid directly to the offices or with a receipt.

Take a look at this video: A basic step by step guide to constructing the drill bit used by agua:yaku's well drilling project. http://aguayaku.org
