Care for Clean WateR

Did you know that 784 million people globally live without basic access to clean water? That's roughly 1 in 10 people. 

Women and children worldwide spend 200 million hours every day collecting water for their families. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

Access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and children.

Here’s how we're helping the poorest communities with our Water Wells projects, bringing safe drinking water right to their doorsteps. Clean water changes everything.

TYPES OF WATER PUMP 


1. MANUAL HAND PUMPS 

In more flat fertile areas, such as parts of Southeast Asia, hand pumps are ideal for villages and households. Manual hand pumps are also more affordable, and easy to install and maintain. The maintenance is done at the village level without the need for special parts. 

For just $325, you will be able to help build a Water Hand Pump that will benefit 1-3 families and help provide clean drinking water that can last for a decade or more.

2. ELECTRIC MOTOR PUMPS (SHALLOW WELLS)  

An electric motor pump is installed at the wells and helps tremendously with the pumping process, reducing the time and effort needed to bring up enough water. This makes it easier for women and children, who are often the ones responsible for this task.

Both the shallow and deep electric pumps are dug to different depths depending on the condition of the ground they are built on. Shallow water wells are dug at a depth of 30-40 feet and installed with a conventional electric motor pump.

At $385 per well, you can build a convenient source of water that will benefit 1-5 families and help provide clean drinking water for the next 10 years or more.

3. ELECTRIC MOTOR PUMPS ( DEEP WELLS)

In some areas, our team will need to dig even deeper to access clean water for the community. The deep electric pumps can reach 50-100 feet in depth, and are more costly due to the extra intensive labour required.

For $585, you will give 1-3 families the gift of clean water that they otherwise could not have access to.
