A clean water supply is vital for life. When a village has no clean water supply, people will drink from dirty pools, walk miles to find a pump, or go without. The results are diarrhoea and other water-borne diseases, as well as exhaustion and dehydration.

Of deaths that occur from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions, 90% are in children under five years old. Child illness also affects their education and development. Clean water supplies are essential to bring life, health, and development. In Burkina they say: Leau, cest la Vie! Water is Life!

This need has become even more important recently as thousands of people are settling after fleeing violence of extremist islamist attacks. They are settling in areas with already overstretched water resources, increasing the problems and the needs.


1. Well-Repair

We prioritise repairing broken-down wells. APT has trained local workers in well-repair. They repair broken-down pumps in villages in the north of Burkina, restoring a clean water supply for the fraction of the cost of a new well. It costs about £400 to repair a broken-down well, and we need about £4,000/year for current work.

2. New Wells

Occasionally, as funds allow, we also drill new wells in villages with no clean water supply. A new well and pump would normally cost about £5,000. But with the current situation, the price is higher to cover security for the drillers

Thank you for any help you can give.
