Water Pumps

The impoverished villagers had no nearby access to water, so they’d send women and children to fetch it. They would have to travel for hours and hours on foot in the heat, carrying heavy water pots to the nearest running river water and all the way back to their village with now filled, heavier pots. Because the water is unsanitary, the villagers would only be able to use that water to wash and shower, not drink or cook with. Also, the supply would be limited, so the villagers would have to use the water conservatively to ration it.

The Problem:

Rural villages have no nearby access to water, so they send women and children to locations far away for hours and hours on foot in the heat to obtain it.

The Solution:

The water pumps are installed in the villages themselves, or very close by in a location such as the farms where the villagers work.
