The Story

In rural parts of countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan and India, women can spend up to five hours every day in search of water, which is often dirty and contaminated with diseases. Accompanied on this audacious journey are their daughters, who miss out on their education as a result. With the provision of water hand pumps, we help reduce a journey time from hours to minutes or even seconds, children can invest their time in getting an education and women are able to capitalise their extra time and energy on activities that boost their family’s income rather than just ensuring family survival. Improved sanitation also alleviates water related diseases.
