Challenge

It is often difficult for rural communities to get access to water in their homes, leading to poor personal hygiene, and the water they do get they are unable to filter for drinking as the infrastructure in the areas is inadequate. Due to the lack of clean and safe drinking water people get sick and sanitation practices become low on the locals' list of priorities. Another aspect is that many schools, healthcare centres in rural communities also do not have access to clean and safe water.

Solution

Rainwater collection is a safe & reliable way to source drinking water. However, without the right collection materials, filtration systems it's not possible currently for communities to collect and use rainwater. Communities without additional resources become vulnerable to limited access to water during the dry seasons. This project aims to fund the installations of rainwater tanks, filtering systems and create awareness for the local community to access water supplies that are safe to drink

Long-Term Impact

Since 2011, we have been dramatically increasing the overall water capacity in several communities around the world. The long-term impact will be ensuring safe and reliable drinking water for communities whilst creating awareness so that communities can continue to have access for years to come. This project also makes it possible for people to have good basic hygiene practises and reduce illness. As we are harvesting rainwater this project is 100% sustainable and using natural resources.
