Solutions

The water crisis problem varies greatly from one country to another.
We are dedicated to tackle the water problem by taking local conditions such as geography, population, effectiveness and sustainability into account when coming up with a solution.
From constructing a simple bio-sand filter to a more complicated water system,
we work with local partners to make sure that we are funding the most appropriate solution for each community.

Water crisis can mainly be divided into two types: water scarcity and water pollution.

From finding a solution to protecting, storing, and purifying water sources, we take actions step by step to bring people in need closer to clean water. Moreover, the quality of water and sanitation practices has an inseparable relationship with each other, so in order to make our projects more sustainable, we focus on solving sanitation problems as well.

Hand Dug Well

Water Supply/ Water Storage

以全人手鑽挖, 可達20-25米深的水源。以人手鑽挖雖然需要大量勞動力,但卻能爲當地居民提供持續的就業機會,成本亦相對便宜。

Machine Dug Well

Water Supply/ Water Storage

以機器鑽挖, 可達 40-150米或更深的地下水源,節省人手之餘,亦相對省時間,可是成本亦相對較高,機器保養也有難度,適用於地質較硬或大石較多的土層。

Community Pond

Water Supply/ Water Storage

在地下水源較深或地層較硬的地方,以機器鑽挖地下水源未能達至成本效益,我們會爲鄉村建造儲水池並安裝圍欄及抽水平台方便村民取水。

Water Dam

Water Supply/ Water Storage

由於地勢的高低,雨水總向低窪地區流走,造成水災,可是較高的地域卻聚不到水。水壩是建築在溪流或河口的屏障,除了用來防止洪水泛濫,更可以集結河水,把水匯集在堤,將河谷淹沒後形成水庫,解決雨水流失的問題。

Gravity Flow System

Water Supply/ Water Storage

山泉、河流、湖泊, 這些水源與村民聚居的地方距離可長達7-10公里,我們從保護水源開始,作簡單的過濾、儲存,再由源頭開始鋪設至村落的水管,並在村裏興建共享水龍頭或住戶水龍頭,讓村民不需再長途跋涉取水。

Bio-sand Filter

clean Water

在許多農村根本沒有電力供應,爲使項目更具持續性,我們采用天然砂石作原材料,爲農戶安裝濾水器,濾水器可以隔絕99%細菌和病毒,而且操作及保養簡單,村民易於接受。

Water Purifier

clean Water

在有電力供應的地方,可以安裝較具規模的淨水裝置,利用逆滲透或超濾技術,配合紫外綫及活性炭等技術,爲學校或醫院提供完善的淨水方案。

Toilet

Sanitation

一克糞便就可能含有1000萬種病毒、100萬種細菌和1000個寄生蟲囊腫。貧窮的村民會到田野、森林、灌木叢、湖泊或河流中排便,雨季來臨時候就會把這些排泄物沖進湖泊及河道,污染水源。若不解決露天排便的問題,就算尋找到再多的水源也是徒然。爲他們建造有遮蓋的厠所,不但解決了當地的衛生問題,同時女性的安全及私密亦得到保障。

Wash Basin

Sanitation

我們會在學校或有需要的地方安裝洗手盤,同時加添垃圾桶及肥皂等消毒設施。並透過當地合作伙伴及學校提供衛生教育。在資源缺乏的地方,健康常識並非必然。衛生教育對預防疾病及保證兒童健康尤其重要。

W.A.S.H 淨水及衛生教育

Sanitation

我們在學校推行的WASH計劃分為三大部分,透過淨水、衛生及教育三方互相配合,除了讓學生享有安全的食水外,同時改善了學校衛生環境,教育學生培養良好的衛生習慣,希望他們能把優良的習慣帶入生活中,在健康的環境下成長。
