With assistance from our partners on ground, hand pumps are installed in Pakistan giving many families access to clean water, improving their chances of living a healthy life.
We are so excited that in 2019 alone, we have commissioned another 19 wells, providing vital water supplies to the driest parts of India, Kenya & Tanzania.
These newly dug wells have been fitted with electrical pumps immersed so the wires and pipes are all buried underground and water is pumped straight to reservoir tanks which are connected taps that provide fresh drinking water and/or water for washrooms usage.
Take a look at the images of our ground breaking solar powered pump in Vitongoji, Arusha, which serves 3 villages with 15,000 litres of water!
