Water is the hope for 785 million people

Today, one-tenth of the world’s population still lack access to the most basic water resources. On average, 1 in 10 people need to walk for at least 30 minutes to fetch drinking water. Millions of women and children have to give up their opportunities to study and earn a living because they spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family, but often the water is full of bacteria. Drinking it directly can cause deadly diseases.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all United Nations Members in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030, of which Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 is “Clean water and sanitation”.Water is the key element of vitality. Everything will be different without water.

The water crisis problem varies greatly from country to country.A Drop of Life is dedicated to tackle the issue by taking the local situation into account when coming up with a water solution.
We work with local partners to make sure that we are funding the most appropriate solution for each community.
We hope to bring clean and safe water to all parts of the world, making our way to realize the SDG goal of “Clean water and sanitation”.

Our Water Project

From Water Supply to Water Purification,
Clean water brings hope to people

Water Storage and Supply Facilities

In dry climate zones, groundwater resources are scarce, and rainfall distribution is unequal in different regions, resulting in a disproportionate amount of annual evaporation and precipitation.

Although some regions contain an abundant amount of water resources, villagers normally lack the ability to mine or divert water to their homes due to limited economic conditions.

Projects: Hand water pumps, gravity flow system, rain water cellar, water dam

Water Purification Facilities

Water is the primary element of many vital minerals, but is also the source of various infectious diseases. Drinking unfiltered water can put one at the risk of contracting diseases such as cholera, malaria and diarrhea. For people in developing countries, contracting these diseases can be fatal.

Projects: Bio-sand filter (School and household),
Nanofiltration water purifier (School)

W.A.S.H Education

Our work does not simply end with providing clean water. In areas where water resources are scarce, sanitation facilities in schools are generally less than ideal, and students often lack access to education on appropriate hygiene practices and awareness.

Projects: Water, sanitation, and hygiene (W.A.S.H) education programs at school, hygiene and sanitation facilities -- toilets and wash basins

DIY Fish Net Water Filters in Myanmar

The life of Burmese villagers is simplistic, many of their houses are built with bamboo, iron sheets or wooden slats, and their kitchens are usually located outdoors. If one has the chance to visit Burmese villages, it is not uncommon to see an old and worn-out fishing net hanging on the outer walls of many houses...

In Myanmar, People would Choose to Drink Rainwater Rather than Underground Water

The town we visited this time was called Dala. It is situated about two hours’ drive from the capital city. The original purpose of our site visit was to inspect the water pumps and water tower, but once we arrived, the village head kept insisting to show us their ponds, hoping that we could help rebuild them. Why do they prefer pond water over underground water?
