Water

You can give the gift of clean water to rural communities in East Africa.

Access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene is one of the most fundamental basic human rights. 1 in 3 people globally do not have access to safe drinking water (World Health Organisation). You can transform a rural community in East Africa by giving the gift of a safe, clean water source. 

When you provide access to a safe water source you help to: 

  • Reduce the number of water related illnesses and ultimately deaths;
  • Reduce the risk of attack on young girls who have to fetch water alone;
  • Decrease the number of hours spent collecting water and therefore allow children to attend school and gain a quality education.

Water

It is our mission to bring fresh, safe drinking water to over 1,000,000 villagers in East Africa.

Access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is one of the most fundamental basic human rights. There are still 663 million people living without clean water and 2.4 billion people without acceptable toilet facilities. In Africa, many local water sources are rivers, ponds or hand-dug holes which are often unprotected and shared with animals.

Our WASH team work tirelessly to bring safe, clean water closer to communities in East Africa. This involves tapping into groundwater, drilling wells, protecting springs, harvesting rainwater and providing water filters. Our new toilet design offers disability access, handwashing facilities and a washroom suitable for girls during menstruation.

At Fields of Life we have three of our own drilling rigs and equipment. This enables us to drill our own wells at the most cost-effective rate. Our hydro-geologist ensures each borehole is drilled in the most suitable location and our drilling teams work hard to complete every well to the highest possible standard.

What is WASH?

Fields of Life’s Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programme includes work to improve the health and quality of life of thousands of people in marginalised communities through:

  • the provision of a safe water supply
  • promotion of appropriate hygiene practices
  • the use of sanitation facilities.
