WaterStep proudly welcomes a hidden hero to our headquarters for Hand Pump Repair Training. Meet Andrew Gardour.
Andrew is from the suburbs of Monrovia, Liberia and is one of WaterStep’s International Partners. Andrew and his WaterStep Liberia Team have been teaching health education to their community for over a year and have already set up a water treatment system in their community to truly save lives with safe water. Why? Because they witness people dying and getting sick from unsafe water. Now, Andrew is learning more about hand pump repair in order to continue his dream of bringing safe water to surrounding communities.
Did you know that WaterStep houses the only Hand Pump Repair School in the United States? During the training students learn about common types of hand pumps, how to assemble and disassemble pump parts and how to troubleshoot common problems. Hand Pump Repair Training is a 3 day course and is held at WaterStep’s headquarters in Louisville, KY. The registration fee per person is $300. If you would like to sponsor someone for hand pump repair training, please call Tomara Brown at 502.568.6342 x 503.
WaterStep is thankful to have hidden heroes all over the world saving lives with safe water!
