Women and girls travel a long distances to get water for their families and by doing so they are endangering their safety. Fetching water keeps many children, specifically girls, away from school and therefore trapping them in the poverty cycle. African Relief Fund with your help is working hard to provide sustainable clean water access points. Thus impacting children future and give those community time improve their lives. Together we can make a lasting change, save and improve lives’ quality for those communities by:
  • Digging wells: We recognize that water is the most precious commodity in a semi-arid region. Therefore, we provide clean water to the thirsty people by digging wells and distributing emergency water in Somalia and the eastern parts of Ethiopia.
Agricultural Irrigation: In order to reduce poverty, we encourage local food production and enhance farming skills. We supply needy farmers with water for irrigation, we also pay other agricultural needs such as tractors, seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. Farmers enthusiastically appreciated the positive outcomes of this project
that generated a source of income. They have now established a self-sustaining life and income for their families. Contribute to providing clean water to livestock, human consumption and for agricultural production.

The environment, unpredictable weather patterns and natural disasters, mean many parts of the world don’t have a stable source of clean, safe water. Poor access to water, or droughts can cause consequential effects, resulting in failing crops, poor health and malnutrition.

Women and Children are disproportionately affected by the water crisis, as they are often responsible for collecting water. This takes time away from work, school and caring for family, locking them into a cycle of poverty. The average distance that women and children walk, to collect water in Africa and Asia is 3.7 miles, carrying around 20 litres of water.

Global One are working with local partners and community members, to find the best sustainable solution in poverty stricken, water scarce locations.


Areas of Pakistan are extremely prone to drought and lack basic water infrastructure. In rural Pakistan, where one-third of the population resides, there is restricted access to adequate sanitation services and safe drinking water and many are left to find water from stagnant ponds or contaminated supplies. With over 22 million people, not having access to water close to their home, many need to travel miles, often alone and exposed to attacks and abuse, just to fetch water.


The Rohingya refugee crisis, has left nearly 1 million Rohingya people currently sheltering in refugee camps in neighbouring Bangladesh, after fleeing ethnic cleansing. Living in makeshift shelters, tightly packed together, in a country already lacking in access to safe water and sanitation for its already densely populated lands, access to many basic resources including water has been scarce for these families.


With a population of 46 million, more than half suffer from poor sanitation and rely on access to water from unsafe water sources. These challenges are especially evident in the rural areas and the urban slums, leaving people to find their own ways of searching for appropriate solutions to these basic needs. For school-aged children, it’s a burden that traps them in poverty.


Nigeria is home to over 190 million people and is one of the most densely populated countries in Africa. 55 million don’t have access to clean water and 116 million don’t have a decent toilet. Poor water and sanitation results in 65,00 children, under the age of 5, dying each year. Few places are as diverse as Nigeria, with customs and languages of more than 500 ethnic groups, making education and good hygiene awareness a great challenge.

Access to safe water and sanitation can quickly turn problems into potential, unlocking education, work opportunities and improved health for women, children and families across the world.
