Water Project in Bangladesh
In rural areas of Bangladesh, 97% of the population relies on tube wells. 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 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 purpose. In 15 minutes while you have your lunch £250 could provide clean water for 1 family. Off monsoon season a tube well could take up to 3-6 month to get the best source of water.
Since 2011 we have built over 1000 tube well in rural areas of Bangladesh. Despite giving it to a beneficiary we make sure that our tube well can be used for everyone in the village. We have inspected on average within 1 hour around 10 families could use 1 tube well.
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.
We are working to provide water for the suffering people around 64 districts in Bangladesh. By 2025 we have a target to install over 2000 tube well in the neediest areas around Bangladesh.
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.
