Partner with us to provide water to a needy community in Kenya through donating cash dollars, donate a water well, donate to charity through drilling a borehole for a community or even sponsor a water pan in Africa or even donate a grant for construction of a water tank in a school inorder to help needy children access schooling without alot of hustles for fetching water. You can sponsor manual water well drilling in Africa which is the easiest and cheapest way to access water. These shallow wells are 20 to 60 feet deep and cost as low as $15,000 as opposed to the more expensive rig drilling which costs as high as $55,000.


Mobilizing of private funding for water projects in Africa | Grants for water drilling and dams construction in Kenya |Funding for mercy water projects in Africa | Fundraiser for charity water in Africa | Sponsorship for sanitation projects and water in Kenya are initiatives that will go a long way in alleviating poverty and enabling the African child access education in a convenient way.

Provision of water in Africa is mainly done via sinking of deep boreholes, construction of dams and through construction of water pans and sand dams. In reference to the subject of availing clean water to African communities and institutions, we would like to express the need for humanitarian aid in some very arid parts of Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania that are dire in water provision and need. We therefore request individuals and humanitarian bodies to consider sponsorship of at least one such project. Alternative sources of funding may come from financial institutions or the private sector.

  1. Sand dams/ water pans

Although design and construction of dams in different areas shows some variability, as each site is different and the design has to be modified accordingly, all dams have a similar basic design. Rivers vary in width and discharge, rock foundations vary in depth and susceptibility to leakage, riverbanks may be high or low. The location of a sand dam should be chosen such that: it is feasible on technical grounds, it has high storage capacity and it is convenient to the community using it. We have come up with strategies in constructing these where we use dam liners to ensure water gets retention of upto 70%. These are fairly low in terms of construction costs and range from as low as US$48,000 for a moderate water pan and US$95,000 for a large water pan, depending on water catchment area and size. A bill of quantities is required.

2. Boreholes drilling and water tanks construction

Boreholes serve particular communities and provide for clean drinking water in some of these areas; however, not all arid areas have aquifers that retain water. In such cases, water pans are more convenient and advisable.
We provide services of geological surveys first to verify how deep your wells or drill rigs will go before we can adequately give an idea of what your costs for drilling water will be. Costs for water drilling in Kenya can be enormous but with the right technical advice one can greatly reduce these costs and that's where we come in. After the geology survey, we proceed to quantify costs needed, tools and personnel and your quest for water drilling or wells drilling can proceed. Boreholes drilling costs range from US$55,000 upwards depending on the area. Water tanks for storage will cost from US$8,500 up to equivalent of US$15,000, depending on structure type. There are maintenance costs for these projects for prolonged sustainability.

In light of the above, we write proposals on behalf of these marginalized communities in Kenya that do approach us for funding of water projects. Some of these conduct their own geology surveys as community groups while others are too poor to even raise money for a geology survey. All groups have their chair persons in place and are quite organized. We do follow up and ensure objectives are met.
We will greatly appreciate if your organization can fully support a group with provision of a borehole, water pans, possibly a dam somewhere and help alleviate poverty and water scarcity in Africa.



  • Globally, almost 1 billion people lack clean drinking water. In Africa, 300,000 million people lack clean water. UNDP
  • Unclean water causes illnesses such as diarrhea, cholera and dysentery. Intestinal worms infect about 10% of the population of the developing world. Intestinal parasitic infections can lead to malnutrition, anemia and stunted growth. WHO

  • Every year there are 4 billion cases of diarrhea as a direct result of drinking contaminated water – resulting in 2.2 million deaths each year. WHO

  • 1.4 million children die every year from diarrhea caused by unclean water and poor sanitation. That’s 4,000 children that die every day, or one child every 20 seconds. UNICEF
  • About 1 in 3 people lacking access to clean water survive on less than $1 per day. WHO

  • Households in rural Africa spend an average of 26% of their time fetching water, walking about 3.75 miles, and it is generally women who are burdened with the task. DFID 

  • The highest risk of infectious disease is from food and water borne illnesses from contaminated water. Water pollution in Africa is from agricultural runoff, sewage, and industrial waste.
