Our solar powered boreholes offer a long-term solution to water scarcity and provide water to thousands of people. The water is pumped from a depth of over 100m, using electricity generated from solar panels, making it a reliable clean, sustainable solution – even in the most remote areas. A solar powered borehole means an entire water system, piped to key areas with taps for easy supply.
In Niger, as in many other countries, communities continue to suffer from acute water scarcity, with 60% of the population with little or not access to clean drinking water. Climate change has further exacerbated the water crisis by increasing severe water stress across various regions. This has caused chronic food insecurity and malnutrition in children.
This is where your support can make a difference! Our solar powered boreholes can supply enough water for an entire community. They come with a water tank and an additional water distribution system for drinking and irrigation. This will not only eradicate the risk of contracting waterborne disease but also enhance food security within these local communities. Islamic Relief also makes sure to establish and train local water management committees to ensure sustainability for each community.
Here at Islamic Relief, we’re working worldwide in over 40 countries across the globe to ensure that not only do communities have a safe and reliable source of water for today, but for life too.
When we build a water system, we ensure communities have a sustainable source of clean water for years to come. We recognize the risk of drought, displacement and disease and with over thirty years of expertise we know that simply drilling wells and installing water pumps cannot solve the water crisis.
We bypass short-term interventions and high running costs to instead provide long-term sustainable solutions; installing irrigation systems, building water tanks, training communities, distributing hygiene kits and rehabilitating viable water systems.
Help us to provide men, women and children clean and safe water, an essential we all take for granted.
