Understand how water aid can help reduce the development gap
Development gap is the gap or divide between rich HICs like the UK and poorer LICs like Kenya
Aid is the giving of resources, support and money
Sanitation is the toilets, drains, sewers
Cholera and dysentery is illness from bacteria caused by the lack of clean water and sewers
Intermediate technology is simple cheap projects like the bike pump run by the locals
What is water Aid? What do they do?
Wateraid is an essential charity that has been running for 38 years
WaterAid was officially established on 21 July 1981. Their first projects were in Zambia and Sri Lanka. They are working with local partners in ten countries. Everyone's support has helped them to reach over 350,000 people
3.575 million people died from a lack of clean water and wateraid try to reduce it
Wateraid is a charity that supports people in poorer countries by setting up sustainable projects that help people get access to clean water and sanitation
WaterAid's aims are to promote and secure poor people's rights and access to safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation; support governments in developing their capacity to deliver safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation
WaterAid provides clean water, decent toilets and hygiene knowledge to people who don't yet have access to them. Access to clean water and toilets is a human right, and should be a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere.
Who do they help?
They teach the people in these countries how to make the rope pump and then the people who have been taught teach everyone else so that they can pass it on to other villages
Wateraid raise £83.6million a year to help people with poor sanitation and no access to clean water
Wateraid work with 34 countries in Africa, Asia, Central America and the Pacific region
When Wateraid help people with their water supply it allows the people of the poorer places to have a better economic well being because when they have clean water there will be less disease and therefore they wont have to buy medicine
Why is it sustainable?
One of the most sustainable projects is the composting toilets. These toilets allow human waste to be turned into fertilizer for crops. This improves economic well being because the people can sell their crops and make money from it.
Another part of Wateraid that is sustainable is the teaching side, the people of wateraid teach children about sanitation and then the children pass their knowledge on to their parents and grandparents
The projects are all very low cost and it costs fifteen pounds for the rope pump which brings clean water to the whole village and cure sickness and death
Some of the projects include the composting toilet and the rope pump
All of Wateraid's projects are sustainable
