Clean Water Wells

Key Information

Clean water is a holistic issue. It affects health, safety, education, and economic empowerment—and can change the game for vulnerable communities. Using local engineering teams, we drill water wells in communities, schools, hospitals, and other public institutions that lack a clean and sustainable water source. Local leaders–women as well as men–are trained to maintain the water source long after the drilling is done. We also often construct solar-powered water systems for health clinics, providing access to the water needed to properly clean and disinfect facilities. These include a water well, solar panels to generate power for an electric pump, and a tower to store the pumped water—creating the ability to run water piped into a building.
