To provide 2000 people with potable water each day that meets the WHO health standards we need to raise money. This money will buy a solar energy powered desalination unit that will turn the salty water into potable water using only the sun. The people don’t have to walk 20 kilometres to the nearest fresh water source and can spend the time getting an education, leading to empowerment and improved health. For us it’s so simple, for them it means the world.
The donated money will cover the design, transportation and installation of the complete potable water solution. With the help of local partners, people will be trained to operate and maintain the solution. The limited operation expenses of the water solution are covered by selling the water for a reduced water rate, to make sure the responsibility of operation and maintenance is embedded in the community.
Strong local partners for successful project implementation
Through a partnership with an NGO that has been active for decades in the region and a company that does well-drilling and piping around the country of Madagascar, the two biggest local risks have been mitigated.
