Materials for a borehole pump

In the developing world, women and children often travel kilometres every day to collect water. With materials and basic training, communities can build a borehole pump, children can go to school and women can support their families at home or at work. Instead of spending time walking to collect water, a borehole gives people close access to clean water and the gift of time.

Every gift purchased through Salvos Gifts empowers communities to lift themselves out of poverty. The cost to implement each project varies. Therefore, when a project is fully funded, we direct excess funding to projects of a similar nature. This ensures the needs of the communities you support are met and that they have ownership of the project.
