This Vimeo video is about the to and fro shift from deadly scarcity to joyful abundance of water. The last video shooting ia about drilling a deep borehole, welcomed as a solution. However, one of the first rope pumps I build in Ghana was on an abandoned borehole. The officials did not have the money to buy the pump for the cost of many thousands of euro. There Demotech made use of the opportunity and taught the community, specially the women, to make and install a rope pump by and for themselves.

This article describes the reality of water services provided either by the municipality or small entrepreneurs. It concludes the importance of the latter group.
Demotech may have to research to introduce large volume storage for such entrepreneurs, possibly to be sold to people in slums at 10 liters at a time.
"Following independence from colonial rule, African governments struggled to cope with
the legacy of fragmented water services and new demands of peri-urban population growth.
Privatization was presented as a panacea that would expand and improve water supply. Small-
scale independent water providers (SSPs) were meanwhile often the only actors ensuring that
services were available to the peri-urban poor. Nonetheless, they were ignored and even vilified
in "pro-poor" strategies of water supply reform. Recent studies have actually demonstrated the
important role SSPs play in serving the poor in African cities, however, substantial knowledge
gaps remain."
