Solar-Powered Borehole: Providing water to entire communities
Water is a necessity for life, yet over two billion people do not have access to a safe source of drinking water. Facing dehydration, drought, and disease, communities are at risk. Our solar-powered boreholes offer a long-term solution to water scarcity and provide water to thousands of people. The water is pumped from the ground, using electricity generated from solar panels, making it a reliable clean, sustainable solution – even in the most remote areas.
Four solar-powered boreholes can supply enough water for a staggering 4,000 people. They come with a water tank and an additional water distribution system. What’s more, we establish water management committees. Ten people per borehole (five men, five women) are trained in water infrastructure management to ensure that communities will benefit as much as possible from this water source.
After the borehole is drilled and fully set-up, the local population will have a safe supply of water for drinking and irrigation. This will not only eradicate the risk of contracting water-borne disease but also enhance food-security within these local communities.
