Over one billion people in the developing world have inadequate access to water. Safe water and hygiene have the potential to take a bite out of the world’s disease problem. Improving access to a acceptable sanitation services helps to keep people healthy and safe—it reduces episodes of diarrheas and deaths.
The world’s water consumption rate doubles every 20 years, outpacing by two times the rate of population growth. At least 1 billion people must walk for three hours or more to get drinking water. Individuals spend more than four hours a day walking to collect water from distant, often polluted sources. The average individual uses 100 to 176 gallons of water a day. In contrast, in the developing countries, the average consumption is a mere 15 gallons every day.
CPOI seeks to dig bore wells in drought prone areas of Andhra Pradesh, India. A single bore well can supply clean drinking water to an entire village 5-10,000 population. Also, the water can be used to irrigate their lands. We have designed a project where these families can easily make their living comfortable.
The cost of each bore well will be about $2500 to $ 4000 depending on the depth of the bore. You as an individual or an organization can partner with CPOI in sponsoring this cause and improve the way of life for an entire village or community. CPOI donations are tax deductible—Act Now. Together, we can make a difference!
