About social
These projects support communities by improving quality of life and stimulating economic development. This is achieved through initiatives like improved household technologies and access to everyday necessities like clean drinking water.
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
