Clean Water Projects
Water is being provided through wells for people in need as one part of a holistic community development model being implemented by Crisis Aid in East Africa.
In 2008 we began implementing a program to provide people living in remote villages where clean water has never been available. Since then, more than 47 wells have been permanently installed in East Africa with 4 new wells added in 2021!
Our goal is to provide enough clean water through the installation of multiple wells within an area to serve the entire community. The specific type of well will differ based on the population density living near the well, road, or school. Today, you can sponsor a well for $13,000 save thousands of lives, provide more time for school and work, as well as give a community the chance to thrive.
People in this community used to be at the mercy of available sources and gather water like this every day in order to have any to use for cooking, cleaning, or drinking. Now, because of gifts to Crisis Aid, this community now has access to clean water, enough for all their needs.

Water System for Your Girl’s Home
Proper water supply and sanitation systems are foundational, a key element for achieving sustainable development goals which include good health.
This water supply and sanitation system have 6 essential Components:
- Source water – underground deep water well is necessary for an adequate water supply for the Girls’ Village.
- Water treatment – the process to filter and purify water so that it is safe for human use.
- Water distribution systems – the pipes and pumps that deliver clean water to the Residents Building and eventually to the Commerce Building.
- Wastewater collection systems – the pipes and pumps that take away used water from the toilets, drains, bathtubs, and laundry. These are also called sewer systems.
- Wastewater treatment – the process to remove contaminants from the used water so it can be safely returned to the environment. This is also called sewage treatment.
- Stormwater systems – the pipes, ditches, and natural systems that channel the rainwater away from the Girl’s home businesses and back to the natural environment.
The need for an adequate water supply and sanitation system is pivotal. The building cannot open until this is complete.
Once the water system is installed, the building can be utilized as a rental space until the funds for the appliances and furnishings have been raised and the building can be officially opened.
