What’s The Cost : Water Wells For Africa

What’s The Cost

————— a holistic approach —————

A common question to ask is, ” How much does a well cost?” It is similar to asking “How much does a car cost?” The answer depends on a lot of factors. What do you want to use the car for? What kind of car do you need? There is not “one price” for a car. Likewise, there are many variables in the price of a well.

To name a few examples, the cost of a well depends on materials, labor wages, depth of the well, type of pump and remoteness of the village. These are all relative fixtures.

the average

WWFA’s average cost per well is $ 8,000 USD.   Please be advised that this cost is relative to our work in Malawi and Mozambique.

However, this figure includes more than drilling a hole and installing a pump. We form a village committee to oversee the well. We also provide the village with hygiene and sanitation training. The training is essential for the well to continue functioning, and without hygienic practices, clean water is much less effective at reducing health issues because people are still exposing themselves to disease.

like a cup of coffee

Each well serves 2,000 people. That means it costs $4.00 to give a person clean water and help them live long and live better. Is that expensive? Not by any means. For every latte you order at Star Bucks, WWFA could use that money to supply a person with clean water for 20 years.
