Clean Water

Flowing streams are sites for collecting drinking water, washing, laundering, and waste disposal. And yet, one community’s drinking reservoir may be downstream from the next community’s waste site. Running water and plumbing are rare and unreliable, and the nearest well may be hours on foot. Water-borne diseases plague entire communities, perpetuating cholera and other preventable illnesses. The issue of water affects everyone but, solutions are available, affordable, and simple.

SHGO and global partners work together to provide water – a basic human right – around our world. Communities with deep water wells, solar water pumps, and innovative filtration systems experience increased health and overall productivity. The simple pump of a well can save a community hours of walking, days of illness, and lifetimes of struggle.
