A reliable, long-lasting hand pump
The problem is unreliable, inaccessible, dirty water
Nearly 1 out of every 3 people in the world lacks access to safe water, resulting in women and children making long and often dangerous journeys daily to collect water that will make them sick. Some drink from streams laden with dirty runoff. Others drink from dirty springs or wells. These communities have no other choice. Unsafe water causes chronic illness and death from preventable waterborne diseases.
For communities that may have access to a nearby hand pump, many cannot access water year-round. They are installed on wells that stop producing water during the dry season because the pumps cannot reach deep enough. Standard hand pumps only reach depths of 50 meters. If the water is too deep, the pump no longer works and forces families to return to unsafe water sources.
