Overview: We are raising funds to install and provide training on a solar water pumping system in the remote Haitian village of Te Wouj, where there is no access to clean drinking water. The system will not only provide safe, sanitary water for the entire village, but will relieve children of their daily water hauling responsibilities so they can focus on their education and childhood.
Details: The solar water pumping system will be installed at the river and pumped into Te Wouj, providing enough water for the entire village's drinking and domestic needs. The simple design of this system will make it effective, easy to use and maintain and a valuable resource for this and future generations.
Working with this project, we will also be providing a hands-on training to anyone in Te Wouj or the surrounding communities interested in learning about the installation, maintenance and upkeep of solar water pumping systems. It is our hope that with this training, the participants will gain the skills to expand this viable trade throughout Haiti. We will also be adding a simple public health component on the importance of clean water to personal and community health. The full course is designed not only to empower people to take care of their health but also their economic future.
The cost of the system includes the design, installation, equipment, spare components, essential maintenance items and the full training for all participants.
The Future:This is Heart & Sol's pilot project, and the first part of a larger vision to empower people in devastated areas to sustain vibrant personal and economic health. We invite you to be part of the beginning of an exciting world solution.
