Impact of Wells

Access to water is the first step to overcoming poverty so we help communities build wells.

Wells tap into the water table and ensure people have access to drinking water all year round, even in times of drought.

Easy access to water increases food production, improves health and reduces time-poverty, particularly for women. It is the basis for better lives.


Water from the well in times of drought brings much-needed nutrients in the soil to life so crops, trees, vegetables and fruits can flourish.


Drinking water transforms the health of a community, releasing the pressure on healthcare services.


Access to water improves health, so more people can work and gives life to the land so there is more work to do.


Women no longer have to walk 5-10km and carry 20kg of water on their heads. They can spend that time and energy on farming, learning new skills and looking after their children.
