In the last decade UNICEF has supported manual drilling in several countries as a possible low cost and sustainable strategy to increase adequate water supply for the population. In partnership with local authorities and other stakeholders, UNICEF has implemented different activities to ensure high professional level in manual drilling: mapping of suitable zones, capacity building in construction of drilling tools and application of different drilling techniques, good practice in manual drilling, organization management. In Guinea manual drilling was unknown before 2011; at that time the joint program of SNAPE (National Water Authority) and UNICEF aiming to create an efficient manual drilling sector started, and after 3 years Guinea can be considered one of the most positive example of implementation of this program.
