We believe access to clean and safe water is an inalienable human right. Our goal is to work directly with communities to provide sustainable access to clean water.
Over 800 million people in the world lack access to clean drinking water. This is especially true of rural villages, where families often have to send women and children to collect water daily. Not only are these wells often shared by approximately 2,500 families, but the trek can also take up to 6 hours a day, which leaves families with little time for education and child-care.
We want to change this narrative. Our solar-powered boxes cost about $10,000 to install and last for 20+ years. We have already successfully worked with the communities in Jurr Village, Jhungal Village, and Bela, Balochistan in Pakistan and have begun work in Yei River State of South Sudan to create sustainable water sources. It is a priority for us that we work with the community and not for the community to ensure the mutual ownership of the project. Our work has only expanded since we have been featured in Forbes and won first place in the competitive Goldman Sachs 2018 Analyst Impact Fund.
Bondh E Shams translates to “droplets from the sun,” it is a reflection of our mission to uphold the human right to access safe and clean water while also maintaining a sustainable environment.
