Challenge

Water is a human right and individuals suffer if there is deficient water. Women especially is most affected with the lack of water. The situation of climate change exacerbates this condition. Hygiene is problematic and water for cooking and general hygiene is sometime not done at all. Diseases caused by the lack of water is a common problem.

Solution

We will provide water via different means fitted to the conditions of the village. Our repertoire of water solutions comprise of the provision of pitcher pumps, rainwater harvesting using giant containers, watershed rehab in order to generate water via gravity and the use of simple ram pumps. Providing this to the community will tremendously solve the problem.

Long-Term Impact

Water is life and provision of water to communities without water is one of the best solution to water deficiency. With water, we will have vibrant communities where individuals are not suffering from diseases and have access to water.
