Challenge

Pump Aid works with rural communities in Malawi. Malawi is among the world's poorest countries ranked in the bottom 10% in the Human Development Index. An ongoing national water point mapping project, indicates that only 57% of the rural population have access to safe water, for sanitation it is as low as 15%. As a result water-related diseases, including cholera and typhoid, are common.

Solution

At Pump Aid we believe that an integrated approach to the provision of water, sanitation and nutrition is vital if health benefits are to be maximised.

Long-Term Impact

Clean water - Pumps are built near homesteads, saving people over 5 hours each day collecting water. This allows children, particularly girls to attend school. Access to clean water and sanitation alleviates suffering from water-borne diseases.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
