Water access is committed to a sustainable generational supply wherever they work. A Solar energy installation connected to a “header” tank of 10,000 litres, ensures that water can be extracted when the sun is shining and stored for continual use by the villagers. To enable this to continue, Community members receive technical and business training, to enable them to act on behalf of the village and maintain supply. A small charge is made for the supply of water to villagers, so that the basic equipment can be maintained indefinitely.
By using solar panels to generate the energy required to utilise pumps for the pumping of water, the wells and boreholes continue to be accessed and used by local village communities. This approach to sustainable supplies is a new and unique method which means that even in remote communities, a potable water supply can be accessed.
We partner with the recipients, local communities and micro water enterprises throughout the process. A successful project results in more time for work and education, improved health, and increased productivity for the community and generating more income.
