How It Works

Are you curious how we implement our solutions?

Below is the step by step process of how we provide villages with water and agriculture through the expertise of our implementing partners, Innovation: Africa and CultivAid.

The Water Process - $65,000

Step - 1

Survey the land.

Step - 2

Drill the well - we drill up to 150 meters (500 feet) deep below the ground.

Step - 3

Water quality checks.

Step - 4

Install solar water pump.

Step - 5

Build a structure to house the water tank and system -this is built together with the villagers.

Step - 6

Install a water tank - our tanks hold 10,000 liters (2600 gallons) of water.

Step - 7

Install solar panels to power the solar pump.

Step - 8

Dig the groundwork for pumping.

Step - 9

Install distribution points - between 10-15 distribution points (20-30 taps) are installed around the village.

Step - 10

Install remote monitoring system - this allows for monitoring and data collection, which makes the system resistant to breakdown, vandalism, and theft - problems typically faced by water systems installed by many aid organizations.

Step - 11

Connect the database to cellular communication technology - this allows the data to be transmitted in real-time.

Step - 12

Throughout the construction period, local managers work with the community to establish a solar water committee and conduct extensive training - this gives the community ownership over the entire process.

Remote Monitoring System

You will be able to see your project's location on a map with a satellite view of your villages, a short description of your villages, some photos highlighting the different stages of installation and the energy and water production chart which receives live updates from the monitoring unit every hour.

Extensive training on agriculture and drip irrigation.

The Immediate Impact

Children have more time and are able to attend to school. Clean water & better sanitation leads to a healthier and more productive community. Economic development from establishing new businesses, as a result of ongoing access to water.

Access to water and innovative agricultural solutions liberate villagers to establish businesses, such as raising chickens and enables better care of livestock and improved productivity of milk, leading to higher income.

Villagers grow more crops or make bricks and sell their yield in the local market to yield large profits.
