Help them today.
Deep wells, lots of water, lots of reward.
In 2020, 2.1 billion people still wake up each morning without access to clean water. This means that millions of vulnerable families around the world do not drink, cook, or bathe with clean water.
Everyone deserves access to clean water, but in areas of drought or rocky terrain a water well digging deep into the earth is the only solution.
Dig-a-Wells are bigger installations and their mechanical hand pumps draw water from up to 35 to 40 metres underground. These wells are constructed in communal places to benefit the whole village and community.
The gift of a Dig-a-Well can provide clean water for both drinking and washing for the whole village. On average, these wells serve up to 200 people.

This is low cost water well with a small diameter and usually about 10 to 15m depth. It serves enough water up to 30 people.
Water is regularly fetched by a bucket pull out by a rope tied to a metal stand on top of the well.
The water is used for drinking, cooking and laundry purposes. To make sure the water from these wells are safe for drinking we ensure it is covered and all hygiene and safety precautions are observed. These wells are designed to last and serve the communities from 20 to 30 years.
