The Hundred Pump Project was a collaboration between Design Outreach, World Vision and private donors to install 100 LifePumps™ in five African countries.
Over 663 million people around the world do not have clean water. Many women and children walk 3-5 miles a day to find water. The Hundred Pump Project sought to make a significant impact on these statistics. It is estimated that over 25,000 lives in Kenya, Ethiopia, Mali, Malawi and Zambia have been directly impacted by the installation of LifePumps.
We are very grateful for our fundraising champions and many others for sponsoring a LifePump™ for a village in Africa. The sponsored pumps will provide long-lasting, clean water for tens of thousands of people who desperately need it.
We are seeking everyday champions to do 3 key things; connect with us, inspire their community and empower a village by providing a long-lasting, clean water source.
Fundraising champions work together to raise the necessary $9,200 for each LifePump™
You can choose any amount to raise! And whether you decide to
raise $200, $2,000, or even the full $9,200 for a new village water pump,
WE HELP YOU DO THIS within 180 days or less.
Imagine a place in Africa where villagers have waited generations to receive a clean-water source. Then, it happens. A well is drilled. A pump is delivered. Water flows. Yet after only 6 months, the well runs dry or the pump simply breaks. Well-meaning donors have come up short on delivering lasting change.
This happens every day.
The LifePump™ is different. It is engineered for developing countries where shallow-drilled wells have failed. The LifePump reaches deeper into the earth, over 325 feet, more than twice as deep as most existing hand pumps can reach. Its rugged design easily withstands continuous daily use for year after year.
How does LifePump help African Villages?
Vickness is just one of the many women in Zolomondo Village, Malawi Africa who is excited to have the LifePump installed last December 2013.
