WHAT WE DO
Today, many of Aqwalife Foundation’s volunteers are also employees of Aqwalife’s corporate arm Aquatech LLC (Founded by the late Prem Sharma) and have extensive experience as water treatment engineers. By combining pro-bono design expertise and charitable donations, Aqwalife has grown to support communities in need throughout the world.
Aqwalife specializes in providing pro-bono consulting, information and technology provision related to micro-infrastructure, community development, and advocates for education regarding water scarcity, sanitation, and waterborne disease prevention.
Clean Water Infrastructure
Borewell provision involves drilling a hole into the ground to access groundwater resources, typically using a drilling rig and other specialized equipment, but sometimes dug by hand. Borewells can provide a reliable source of water for domestic and agricultural use in areas where surface water is scarce or contaminated. However, it is important to ensure that the groundwater is safe and free from contaminants, and that the borewell is properly maintained to prevent the spread of waterborne illnesses. Aqwalife often couples borewell provision with filtration to ensure communities thrive.
Access to Sanitation
Access to sanitation refers to the availability of facilities and services that safely manage human excreta and wastewater. Aqwalife’s focus includes the provision of toilets and bathroom areas and ensuring that proper education is given to the community members regarding the importance of sanitation. Access to sanitation is a critical component of public health and can help to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases, improve environmental sustainability, and promote social and economic development.
Access to education for all, particularly for women and children who spend significant time gathering water, is essential for promoting sustainable development and reducing poverty. Lack of access to education can perpetuate cycles of poverty and gender inequality, as it can prevent individuals from acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to improve their lives and communities. By providing education and sustainable access to clean water, individuals can gain the tools and resources needed to create better lives for themselves, improve health outcomes, and increase economic opportunities community-wide.
Climate Change Adaptation
Aqwalife Foundation has begun to lead the way in climate change adaptation with both innovative and traditional initiatives aimed at building resilience and promoting sustainable practices, ensuring a better future for both people and the planet. Aqwalife is passionate about climate resilience projects and continues to work these initiatives into our overall strategy.
