Clean Water and Conservation in the Philippines

$10,888 $0
Raised Remaining


On the island of Negros, in the Philippines, an innovative pump will bring clean running water to thousands of people in 12 villages and encourage watershed conservation within these communities

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Currently, women and children are having to walk down steep and dangerous hillsides in order to collect water. This task has significantly reduced the villager's standard of living. Yet there is a solution to the problem. AIDFI, a local NGO, in partnership with Green Empowerment, is able to deliver water to these communities using a ram pump, which will allow for the community members to spend their time doing other productive activities. This will take the burden off both women and children.

How will this project solve this problem?

Donations will go towards the first project that needs funding on the list. Once this project has been funded, the next project on the list will be implemented. With each pump, villagers receive tree seedlings to plant, to preserve the watershed.

Potential Long Term Impact

The installation of ram pumps for these twelve separate sites will benefit these communities in creating a more accessible water system and a healthier environment based on their agreement to protect their watershed in return for the technology.
