About

Our Shallow Well initiative focuses on areas where access to clean water is a distant dream. We meticulously select sites where the need is greatest—often where communities rely on contaminated sources or endure long, arduous journeys to fetch water. By constructing shallow wells in these carefully chosen locations, we not only provide a vital resource but also uplift entire communities. These wells reduce health risks from unsafe water and give back hours each day for education and economic activities, fundamentally changing lives.

    What distinguishes shallow wells from deep wells?2023-12-16T07:27:15-05:00

    Shallow wells, with depths of 15-30 feet, tap into the nearer water table and serve approximately 300 people. Deep wells, using a rota sludge pump, reach greater depths and cater to over 500 people. They are ideal for areas with deeper water sources and require minimal maintenance compared to shallow wells.

    How long does a shallow well last?2023-12-16T07:27:36-05:00

    Shallow wells, with proper upkeep, can effectively serve a community for about 10-15 years before major maintenance is required. Their longevity depends on regular care and the environmental conditions of the area.
