Well in Boukombe Benin, home of Somba or around here.
This well has a rope with a crank system. It appears between 25 and 40 meters of depth, they change the pull system.
Below is an overhand pull and no mechanics. The size of the bucket increases also.
 

This is difficult, I thnk it is a clay stove, however the grain silos look the same.
The base and very part is fireproof.

This is a Meter for public water in Boukombe Benin

Cassava or Manioc Grinding, I believe this is poisonous to humans unless converted to flour.

Chez Yatti
Pronounceded Chay Yattee
The real name may be Auberge Refuge.
10 Degrees 10.527 North
001 Degrees 06.567 East
That is GPS coordinates that leads back to the Chez.

Note, it is diagonally across from the typical Marche or Market that is on Sunday; however, the set up is always there. As you travel to Boukombe from Natitingou, as you enter the city well before you get to the main crossroad it is on your left, opposite the market.

2000 CFA Shared Bath and Toilet
I say I move hotels, I do not move cities. I am now in some made for backpackers, West Africa style, and no backpackers. No tourist, I think I am the only white person around, there is supposed to Laura from the Peace Corps in this village, have not seen her.
 

This is a great system for pumping water from deep depths.
By stepping on the pad, the weight or gravity forces the water from the ground.
