Field Notes

The water technologies we fund depend on the region's water availability, culture and economic conditions. Our partners survey each site and meet with the communities to determine the best solution.

This community received a spring protection. A gravity-fed system captures and safely stores pure water from a natural spring and pipes it to communities. Their reach depends on the spring's water yield; some provide water for one village, others can serve thousands of people in several villages.

The remainder of the cost of this project was funded by individual donations for a total of $1,858.05
