Campaign launched: January 11, 2019 Creator: Cassidy Ford

My name is Cassidy Ford and I am a current senior at Upper Arlington High School. I am creating this campaign for my senior project, and my overall goal is to provide water to a village in Haiti and remind people that the world has not forgotten about them.

Campaign Details

Campaign Code: LifePump-69

When I was 16 I went on a Mission Trip to Nicaragua where I immediately fell in love with helping people. For my senior research paper I studied food insecurity in Haiti and it really got me thinking as to how, as a community, we can make a difference. In my paper I explored the idea that the first thing needed in order to combat food insecurity is a reliable water source. This pump will not only save lives, but could also take one step forward in the battle against starvation.

About the LifePump Project

Design Outreach is collaborating with overseas partners, local governments in Africa and Haiti, and individuals like YOU to install LifePumps across the globe.

More than 663 million people around the world do not have access to clean water. Many women and children walk 3 to 5 miles a day to find water. Design Outreach seeks to make a significant impact on these statistics through the LifePump, a deep-reaching, durable hand pump designed to last years with minimal maintenance. Thousands of lives in Kenya, Ethiopia, Mali, Malawi, Zambia, and Haiti already have been directly impacted by the installation of LifePumps. ​

We are very grateful for our fundraising champions and many others for funding our future and sponsoring LifePump​s​™ ​for villages in Africa and Haiti. The​se pumps will provide long-lasting, clean water for tens of thousands of people who desperately need it.
