Water for Life

You are here:

The Water for Life Committee was established in 2005 under the guidance of his Holiness Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the spiritual head of the Worldwide Ahmadiyya Community. It’s major objective was to carry out research into establishing cheap methods for the extraction of clean potable drinking water for the people of Africa.

Problem

The number one source of fresh drinking water in Africa is ground water. Over the many years organisation, NGO’s and charities have tapped into this water source to provide water to many in rural villages. However it was found that in reality these people are still deprived of fresh drinking water as these water pumps have been broken and neglected. These people are then left to resort to shallow open wells and rivers.

Solution  

The Committee recognised that to achieve the task set by Hazrat Amirul Momineen it would concentrate on rehabilitation of such broken down water pumps at an average cost of £1,500 rather than new pumps costing £15-20,000 each.

Impact

In this manner the Committee, through the blessings of Khilafat, has successfully completed almost 2000 water pump rehabilitations bringing relief to over millions of people who most need this basic human requirement. Since its inception the Water for Life Committee has worked in the following countries

  • Benin
  • Burkina Faso
  • Gambia
  • Ghana  
  • Ivory Coast
  • Kenya
  • Mali
  • Niger
  • Rwanda
  • Tanzania
