In South East Asia including Pakistan 90% of the population in rural areas lacks access to clean drinking water. Under our ongoing Clean Drinking Water Project, RRAI in partnership with Pravalli Welfare Trust of Pakistan installs Small Hand Water Pumps ($250), Small Solar Powered Water Pump ($750), and Electric Pumps ($700) in the remote villages of Pakistan. Also installs Solar Pumps for Existing Deep Wells ($1800) and Agriculture Pumps ($2000) in Thar Desert area of Sindh. In hilly areas like Abbottabad and Azad Kashmir, RRAI provides means to bring water from distant springs to villages by gravity and provide water storage tanks in the village.
For Sadaqa Jariya RRAI provides option to have donors name posted on the pump and the pictures of the pump or water schemes are provided to the donor.
