Well Rehabilitation Project
We're pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with CO2 Balance, a UK company specialising in Carbon Offsetting. The project aims to provide clean water for many of the rural poor in Burkina Faso AND to help prevent global warming!
The inital pilot scheme is being launched in January 2022 and aims to rehabilitate 26 wells that have fallen into disuse, providing clean water to over 10,000 people. Having clean water means that there's no longer a requirement to boil water to purify it, and the wood and CO2 that is saved is known as a carbon credit, which can be sold to companies and institutions wishing to offset their carbon footprint. The income from this sale funds the project.
Having access to clean water is regarded as the single most important change that can be made to affect peoples lives, leading to a meaningful drop in water-borne diseases and other health issues. For example, the infant mortality rate immediately drops by 20% in areas where clean water is introduced.
If the intial pilot is successful, we've already agreed to continue the project for 5 years and rehabilitate 520 wells and provide clean water for over 200,000 people! ... See MoreSee Less
