Water Hand Pump Project
Water hand pumps are very simple and small gifts, empowering vulnerable women and children by giving them dignity in accessing water. Particularly in Bangladesh , Sri Lanka and Pakistan, women and children can spend many hours fetching water from nearby sources, sometimes walking up to 2-3 kilometres in search of drinking water. Many children are unable to go to school as they spend their morning hours fetching water. With this project, shallow water hand pumps are installed in order to lift the underground water. We target the most vulnerable communities who do not have easy access to clean water in the rural areas.
- Target £300000 to install 2000 water hand pumps by 2016.
- £150 to sponsor a Water Hand Pump
