My story

[p]Aspect Capital is fundraising for its 2019 Charity of the Year, Pump Aid, by hosting and participating in a number of events. Aspect's charity committee will match all donations pound for pound.[/p][p]Since 1998 Pump Aid has brought reliable access to safe water to 1.35m people in sub-Saharan Africa. Pump Aid believes in a sustainable approach to tackling water poverty. In accordance with this approach, Pump Aid took the step of commissioning the design in Malawi of a new type of pump that could be built locally, in a simple workshop, from affordable and locally available materials. The charity then embarked on a programme of setting up, training and mentoring small businesses to dig wells and build, maintain and repair pumps and sell their products and services at an affordable price. By linking customers with Village Savings and Loans committees, Pump Aid has enabled them to invest in water points – supplied, built, maintained and repaired over the long term by the entrepreneurs it has trained.[/p][p]Pump Aid was crowned International Development Charity of the Year at the 2017 UK Charity Awards for this ground-breaking work. After the first year of the project, 25 small businesses had given 21,614 customers sustainable access to safe water at half the per capita cost of the traditional aid model.[/p][p]Pump Aid’s approach has also enabled local farmers to seize the benefits of affordable irrigation, bringing improved agricultural output and food security; and the charity employs the small businesses to build water points, latrines and kitchen gardens in pre-schools, drastically improving the life chances of the under 5's. There are no subsidies and all funds invested remain in the target communities building resilience and self-reliance through improved health, education, economic empowerment and agricultural productivity[/p]
