Clean Water and Sanitation. Clean, accesible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in.
Life on Land. Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss.

How it works

  • Project developer funds the necessary tools and infrastructure to maintain the existing boreholes 

  • Maintenance of the boreholes provides neccesary clean water for community members, eliminating the need to walk far distances to source fresh water, or the need to burn fuel or wood to boil water 

  • This reduces the strain of responsibilities for women and improves sanitary conditions, reducing any health strains on the community
