BridgIT Water Foundation

BridgIT Water Foundation General Appeal

Every person deserves clean drinking water and the aim of BridgIT Water Foundation is to better the lives of people in developing rural communities without access to safe drinking water.

Lack of access to clean water is one of the leading causes of poverty

Women and children bear the burden of carrying heavy containers collecting household water and search long distances to collect poor quality water from surface ponds or rivers knowing it could cause them and their families severe illness or even death.

Contaminated drinking water, poor living conditions and inadequate hygiene remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in rural areas worldwide with millions of preventable deaths per year attributed to water-borne diseases such as dysentery, cholera, typhoid and diarrhoea.  The link between access to safe drinking water and the overall health status of people is undeniable.

Water wells are particularly critical for poverty reduction in rural areas.  BridgIT Water's aid and development objective is to implement programs that provide a safe drinking water supply to address the water scarcity challenges of some of the poorest, most marginalised people in rural areas in developing nations.

How We Work

Your donation gives a clean water supply to communities in our global projects in Uganda, India, Nepal, Malawi or Southeast Asia. 

Our development programs are achieved by delivering water solutions into rural communities through partner and community focused strategies.  Our program activities have a major impact on development by making the water resource accessible to people, therefore, our goal is to install the water supply in a central location within each rural community to alleviate people searching long distances for contaminated water.

BridgIT's community-based partners listen to their target communities ensuring the poorest of the poor are helped and empower them to manage and maintain their new water resource.

How Will Your Funds Be Used

BridgIT has hundreds of rural villages that are urgently requesting a clean, safe water supply.  BridgIT's low-cost, high-impact projects allow donors to achieve truly effective altruism through a high philanthropic return on investment.

This iniative hopes to engage corporates and individuals to sponsor one of these global communities to provide them with a source of clean, safe water. Donate the full or partial cost of a clean water supply for an entire rural community or school desperately in need.  All our water supplies focus on underserved, remote rural communities with average population sizes of 500 to 2,000 people making your donation for the total cost of a well very effective.

With your help BridgIT aims to provide access to improved drinking water to 1.5 million people by 2024.  Play a role in helping alleviate poverty by sponsoring a community water supply.
