Afrinspire Water Appeal
Why we need your help
So many more people need clean water. We can do it. Can you help us?
Since 2006 Afrinspire has funded and overseen 232 constructions for enhanced water supply in East Africa. An estimated 43,150 people have benefitted from a clean water source. On average it has cost £1.50 for every person helped. This is more cost effective than every other charity we have come across.
22% of the funding for water has come from local contributions alongside 78% from Afrinspire.
Local teams for construction have been nurtured in several localities and the need for protecting springs and digging shallow wells are identified by local communities.
There are many unprotected springs in the foothills of Mount Elgon and spreading over vast areas into so many communities. In the flatlands north of Lake Victoria in dry seasons the water table is several meters below the ground level but can be reached easily and this is where shallow wells are useful and essential. They replace muddy and unhygeinci holes dug in the ground
A spring typically helps 200 people and costs about £200 to construct. A shallow well typically costs £2,000 and helps 500 to 700 people.
We have a large programme of springs and wells waiting to construct and every little bit of help you can give will bring clean water to more people.
We have constructions waiting in Uganda, Zambia and DR Congo.
