FairWater does not believe that just "more Funding" will solve the water crisis for the poor. What is needed is a focus on quality water pumps, to lower the cost of maintenance and to have less down-time of the pumps.

With Oxfam, we developed the reliable BluePump who is doing just that, over 1.000 BluePumps in Africa now prove every day that more reliable pumps, with a local back-up, is the way to go.

Amazingly enough, it was found that by using reliable BluePumps, NGOs can do twice as much, for half of the cost, while having a realistic sustainable impact.

This success story needs to get more attention, so don't ask for more money, just spend your donations more wisely.

Thank you
