Due to advances in technology, SPOT Project no longer builds water wells but has instead invested in progressive initiatives such as boreholes.
A borehole is a solar powered mechanism which involves drilling deep into the ground to access clean water. The water is then powered up and a tap system is created. The advantages of a borehole make it more sustainable, easily maintained and accessible to all.
It is important for public health that available water- whether it is used for drinking, domestic use or food production- is safe. It has been proven that improved water supply and sanitation can boost countries economic growth and result in poverty reduction. Every person has the right to safe, continuous and physically accessible water for personal and domestic use.
The cost of installing a borehole is £3,000.
