More Info

Water is a basic human right. Yet, 36% of people living in Guinea do not have access to safe water in their homes, schools or even health clinics.

 

UNICEF has a proven, low-cost solution (on average $12.55 per person) that is transforming rural communities in Guinea. Manually drilling bore holes with a simple auger eliminates the need for power tools of any kind. This enables UNICEF — and the local small businesses UNICEF has trained — to drill in the hardest-to-reach villages. Depending on the population of a village, some will have hand pumps, other solar-powered systems. In order to safeguard access to safe water for generations to come, all water points will be monitored by UNICEF and maintained by community water committees.
