Lack of clean water Africa.

   The United Nations estimate that Sub-Saharan Africa alone looses approximately 40 billion potential work hours per year collecting water. The rate of return on spending on water and sanitation can exceed other public investments such as transport, health or education and liberate communities in finding economic opportunities.

Empowering the thirsty.

  Our work focuses discovering, drilling and creating sources of clean drinking water and building viable networks of water-wells in rural communities. Our aim is to diminish the health-risks associated with drinking contaminated water. The access to clean water and sanitation improves the quality of life of an entire community and also brings tangible health and economic benefits to them directly contributing to reducing poverty. Our clean water initiative ultimately aims at advancing human progress and helping families escape the devastating cycle of poverty and disease that affects their health and drains their economic resources.

HEALTH

Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence combined, including war.

43% of the attributed deaths are children under the age of 5.

Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16,000 lives each week.

EDUCATION

Clean water helps keep children in school, especially girls. The less time is invested in the collecting of water the more time a child can be in class. Clean water and proper toilets at school entails that girls don’t have to stay home for a week out of every month.

TIME
In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking to find and carry water. 
Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school -- all of which are important factors at fighting poverty.

FEMALE EMPOWERMENT
Women are responsible for 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa. When a community receives

water, women and girls get their lives back. They find work, improve their homes, and take charge of their own futures.
