People can dig their own shallow wells to access groundwater. However, because these shallow, but they quickly become contaminated with bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Our wells provide communities with protected and permanent water sources.

When farmers + communities rely on crops + livestock, or families don't have the means to move, the best solution is to build a clean water source near their homes. We build small community wells that are easy to operate and maintain, so families + communities can stay intact.

According to UNwater.org, women and girls usually have the responsibility of fetching water. This can be a dangerous, time-consuming and physically demanding task. Long journeys by foot, often more than once a day, can leave women and girls vulnerable to attack and often precludes them from school or earning an income.
