We engage in participatory approaches with partners & community
Our partners listen to the communities they represent. Our specially selected grassroots community-based partners establish, develop and maintain our water programs using bottom-up community-focused approaches within their target communities.
Our partners conduct comprehensive target area needs assessments, ensuring projects are community demand-driven. During consultations, listening to their communities can ensure they receive the most appropriate water solution to suit their needs and skill capacity.
We provide appropriate water solutions
There are engineering and technical considerations with water movement. Our projects range from a simple hand pump installation to a more complex solar pump installation.
Approved contractors provide our water project design, budget, and equipment suitability to ensure that the most appropriate and cost-effective technology is installed suitable for community need and skill capacity.
We use sustainability strategies
It's one thing to provide a new water well, but how is it maintained when it needs repair? We ensure our water systems are designed to suit the potential operators' skills and community representatives are correctly trained in the governance and maintenance of their new water resource as an integral part of the project process.
Our project partners provide training to representatives of each beneficiary community to engage and empower them to take ownership, be self-reliant and independent to manage their own water resources into the future.
