Hospitals & Villages don't have access to clean water

Beneficiaries:  100's of Rural Villages

Lack of access to clean, safe water in communities in Uganda, India, Nepal, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Malawi causes people to travel at least 2km every day to collect drinking water. This unsafe water causes high incidence of preventable water-borne diseases and preventable illnesses.

 

Solution: Drilling, hand digging or refurbishing existing wells and installing hand pumps centrally located and accessible to most community households, schools and health care facilities to alleviate walking long distances to collect water.

 

Cost per Well:  From US$2,000
