Access to clean water can transform the lives of entire communities. The gift of a Dig-a-Well can serve up to 200 people, providing access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking, as well as keeping livestock hydrated. On average, these wells serve around 35 families.
Dig-a-Wells are ideal for families who rely on agriculture and farming. The wells have mechanical hand pumps and draw water from up to 40 metres beneath the ground making them dependable during all seasons.
Your Dig-a-Well will be situated in a communal place such as village centre, school or mosque.
Note: A well can take up to 6-9 months to complete as in some locations they can only be constructed during certain times of year.
