Providing safe drinking water to those most in need
Your donation will provide a safe drinking water supply to a rural community and improve health and education impacts to the lives of thousands of people
The Water Crisis
In many rural areas, drinking water from unprotected water sources (sometimes shared with livestock) is a stark reality.
Lack of access to clean water means that thousands of people living in rural areas are stuck in a poverty cycle unable to meet basic needs to improve living conditions.
Because these rural areas lack safe water, preventable water-borne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, dysentery and diarrhoea are reported highly.
The burden of water collection is typically tasked to women and children, who can travel up to 4 hours every day many kilometres from where they live.
Every day thousands of students head to schools with no clean water supplies. Without access to water, education is almost impossible.
But access to clean drinking water changes everything.
We assess need in collaboration with global partners, communities and government agencies ensuring that communities with the highest need receive a water well
We locate our wells within 300mtrs of village households where people live saving recipients time on water collection improving economic growth
Our community recipients are given complete ownership of their water resource and are provided comprehensive training on well management
Our water supply designs use suitable technical scope and water delivery methods so that recipients can manage breakdowns
We match our donors to the highest priority water scarcity communities
