Sponsor A Water Supply

There are far too many people in rural communities throughout the developing world who do not have access to a safe water supply for their domestic purposes.  Community members are forced to collect water from open, unsafe and contaminated water sources which can be seasonal ponds, open water holes, streams or swamps.  š

As this is often the only drinking water available, water-borne diseases such as typhoid, dysentery, cholera and diarrhea are extremely high.  Not to mention high infant morbidity rates.

Give water to a rural village - help reduce poverty and save lives

  • BridgIT Water offers personal interaction with the donor to see how well their financial benevolence has been applied. We provide personalized donor reports or site visits to prove effective progress of resources.

  • BridgIT Water offers project information on areas of interest specific to the donor.  For example, technical or engineering feedback to suit differing donor information needs.

  • School children should not have to collect water, they should be getting an education.

  • Providing a water supply to a local Primary or Secondary School has a broad community impact. Rural community schools are often the heart of community life and can have anywhere from 250 to 3000 pupils attending.

  • Completion time from start to finish for a village or School water supply can be anywhere from 4 - 6 weeks.

  • Often a Health Centre services many rural villages which can have a total population of over 30,000 people.

  • Often these health centres do not have adequate or any water to carry out basic medical services. (Imagine a women in labour having to bring her own water over many kilometres on foot to give birth). These and many more are often the challenges.

  • Completion time from start to finish is usually 6-8 weeks to supply an entire Health Centre with safe water.

  • The cost to supply a village water supply range from US$1,000 - $20,000 depending on the water solution.

  • 500 to 2,000 people on average are impacted

  • Every dollar spent will impact a larger number of people.

  • Completion time from start to finish is usually 4-6 weeks to supply a whole village with water.
