Water for the SAN village of Grashoek
N#a Jaqna Conservancy, the body responsible for the area affected by the project, expressed in an informal, positive opinion. We are therefore waiting to receive a signed letter of official confirmation. Through the Conservancy was also contacted the Water Affairs Bureau, the government body that deals with the management of resources and which is the body responsible for issuing the final permits to proceed. This office will also deliver the necessary technical data we need to fully define the project and the installation.
As soon as Water Affairs shall deliver all requested datas, Scintille will be able to look for final quotations for the completino of the project.
During the month of January, the President of Scintille with the Director of LCFN Mr. Werner Pfeifer, has personally carried out an inspection at the site where the pump will be installed, to detect the initial rough data. This initial analysis showed that the water is at a depth of about 200 metres. Everything will be more precise after the delivery of the data transmitted by the Namibian Water Affair. As mentioned, the project will be conducted together with Living Culture Foundation Namibia (LCFN), which will support Scintille especially in connections with local communities and suppliers.

We left each other with the promise of having another meeting at the end of july. In the meanwhile the Conservancy will try to ask to Government the possibility that it will assure the maintainance until the moment in which it will pass the management af all water to them. They will try to understand how to manage directly the maintainance too.
Scintille, on its side, will ask suppliers if they can offer a three-year contract for the maintainance ‘on-site’ with the delivery of the pump itself.
So, together with Sebastian, LCFN chairmen (the Namibian Fundation collaborating to the project with Scintille) and Jean (the supplier) we installed on the 2 of september 2008 the new 5.000 litres water tank. At the end of the works satisfaction was on all people’s face and the long applause that Scintille received during the next meeting with the community witnessed the gratitude of them all.
