Globally 663 million people lack access to clean water and 2 billion people don’t have access to a proper toilet. Pump Aid is working to change this by providing sustainable, low cost solutions that meet people’s needs. Over the last two decades Pump Aid has provided clean water to nearly 1.5 million people.

More about Pump Aid

Pump Aid is a UK-registered charity working with communities in Malawi to provide access to clean water. In the UK we take clean water for granted, but in sub-Saharan Africa, it is a luxury many people still do not have. Approximately three out of four Malawians live on less than 85p a day and the country is ranked 174 out of 186 in the UN Human Development Index. Over 2 million Malawians live without access to clean water and often have to travel long distances to visit contaminated open wells, inevitably reducing the time available for income-generating activities and education. This burden falls most heavily upon women and girls. Water-borne illness is considered a normal part of life, and according to a 2011 report on disease in Malawi, diarrhoea is the third leading cause of death among adults. It causes 18% of deaths in children, one in ten of whom will not live to see their fifth birthday. There are 17 diarrhoea-related deaths of children under five every day.

Pump Aid has worked in Zimbabwe and Liberia and is now focusing on its flagship programme in Malawi, where its representatives improve the lives of its poorest communities through the installation of water pumps. The charity provides hygiene training, sanitation programmes in schools, and what is an emerging strand of work, encouraging the development of entrepreneurship in local water and sanitation infrastructure. Pump Aid's outcomes-based, whole-community approach means it is able to meet an urgent need in a way that is sustainable for future generations.
