HAND PUMP FOR LEYAN

Type: Hand pump
Location: Leyan, Liberia
People directly affected: 760
Price: 3,500 US$

The situation:

In Leyan, near Monrovia in Liberia, estimated 760 people are sharing a single handpump. During the dry season the water level in the borehole is low, and each household (often with many people living together) are entitled to collect no more than 2 buckets of clean water per day, to make sure that every household gets their share. Imagine the poor level of hygiene in a home of 5 people or more sharing 2 buckets of water per day for drinking, cooking, bathing.

The solution:

For 3.500US$ W4W’s local partner, the Liberian NGO United Youth, will install a second hand pump in the community, doubling the quantity of water per household per day in the dry season. United Youth will additionally train the community in maintaining the pump and check up on the pump every once in a while; to make sure the pump is properly used and maintained.

Donate:

Any private person or company can be a part of the solution in Leyan by donating directly to the project here on the page. You can choose to have your name and donation mentioned on the page, or to be anonymous. Once the full amount for the project has been reached, the project will be marked as Accomplished by Crowd funding. If at any time before the full amount is raised, a single company takes upon them to sponsor the full amount, this company will be marked as head sponsor of the project, and have their name and logo presented as a hyperlink for their website, on the banner for the project, on the front page. If this happens, all lesser donations for the particular project, along with the information of donators, will be transferred to another of W4W’s unfinished projects.

ALL W4W’s WORK IS VOLUNTEER AND ALL MONEY DONATED TO W4W’s PROJECTS GOES 100% UNCUT TO W4W’s WATER PROJECTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.
