We bring water closer to women Women can spend up to 6 hours a day just walking and gathering water to sustain their families. The water they gather is shared with animals, and can cause diseases. We help bring water closer to women in three ways. Water tanks.
A woman can capture rainwater with her iron sheet roof, reducing the amount of time she spends walking. Spring Preservation. We build large tanks to separate spring water from animals, which helps clean up the water. Boreholes. We drill boreholes deep into the earth to access water in locations that are safe from predators.
