We have been facilitating water projects in Nigeria since October of 2018. Each project consists of a deep encased borehole (drilled into the aquifer) and submersible water pump. The deep well pump is sealed in a compartment connected by wires to a generator above the ground. Water is them pumped to the surface. Above ground the water is stored in a 3,000 to 5,000-liter storage tank. Each tank is placed on housing specifically built to house the storage tank. Prior to drilling a survey is conducted to determine the presence and likely quantity of water.
All water projects are completed using local services, labor, and construction materials. In doing this we not only bring water to those that don’t have it we infuse finances into the local economy.
where we work
Often referred to as the "Giant of Africa" Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world. Nigeria has the third-largest youth population in the world, after India and China. Nigeria is viewed as a multinational state as it is inhabited by 250 ethnic groups. The official language of Nigeria is English, chosen to facilitate linguistic unity at the national level. Nigeria is divided roughly in half between Christians, who live mostly in the southern part of the country, and Muslims, who live mostly in the north. A minority of the population practice religions indigenous to Nigeria, such as those native to the Igbo and Yoruba ethnicities.
Human Development Index
Nigeria ranks very low on the Human Development Index (HDI). The HDI is a summary measure for assessing long-term progress in three basic dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, access to knowledge and a decent standard of living. Nigeria’s HDI value for 2018 was 0.534— which put the country in the low human development category—positioning it at 158 out of 189 countries and territories.
estimated population of the country is over 206 million o Most of the population is a young population, with over 40% being between the ages of 0–14 years old. According to the United Nations, the population of Nigeria will reach 411 million by 2050
According to UNICEF only 26.5 per cent of the population use improved drinking water sources and sanitation facilities. Because of this the use of contaminated drinking water and poor sanitary conditions result in increased vulnerability to water-borne diseases.
