Water Project in Bangladesh
In rural areas of Bangladesh, 97% of the population relies on tube wells. During the past three decades in Bangladesh, millions of tube wells have been installed to reduce the diarrheal disease; especially in children. On average, a tube well can last around 15 to 20 years with the care of a beneficiary. Without access to a tube well people have to drink pond or lake water that are contaminated with bacteria and used for showering or other purposes. Just £250 could provide clean water source for 1 family. Off monsoon season a tube well could take up to 3-6 months to get the best source of water.
Since 2011 we have built over 2100 tube wells in rural areas of Bangladesh. Despite donating it to a beneficiary, we make sure that our tube well can be used by everyone in the village. We have inspected on average within 1 hour around 10 families take benefit from 1 tube well.
Tube wells are manually operated and can lift water from 40 to 50 meters beneath the ground. They are designed to last at least 10 to 15 years and can be easily maintained by the beneficiary. We are working to provide water for the suffering people in around 64 districts in Bangladesh. By 2025 we have a target to install over 5000 tube wells in the most needed areas of Bangladesh.
Tube wells are manually operated and can lift water from 40 to 50 metres beneath the ground. They are designed to last at least 10 to 15 years and can be easily maintained by the beneficiary.
Please note: Hand pump or deep tube well can take up to 7-9 months to complete once the donation has been made. This is due to restrictions of certain locations where construction can be carried out at specific times during the year and the due diligence that must be done on the area.
