The most common cause of death in the developing world is drinking dirty water.
Water is one of the key essentials of life, but millions of people around the world do not have access to clean water and this has become one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. In developing countries women and children have to walk long distances in difficult conditions to provide water for their families and often the water they do get is unsafe due to contamination which can lead to life threatening diseases like diarrhoea and cholera.
ATI implements several sustainable solutions to ensure the supply of clean, safe drinking water to people who otherwise have no access to it. Every year, in addition to emergency water supplies in drought hit areas our SAFE WATER FOR ALL campaign provides 1000s of needy families with personalised resource of safe and clean water in the form of shallow water wells and community water facilities. Since 2006 we have worked tirelessly in constructing wells in Sudan, Somalia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia and Nepal.
Over the past 12 months ATI has installed:
- 268 shallow water wells and hand pumps
- 7 Community Water supply facilities
- 16 Sanitation facilities
Total Beneficiaries over 7300
How much it costs
- A shallow water well and hand pump, in Pakistan or Nepal, costs just £150
- A deep community well in Pakistan costs £1500
- A deep community well in Africa costs £3000
