Trek for our Tharparkar Solar Water Village Project

30% of households in Pakistan access water from unsafe sources, particularly in drought hit areas. Thousands of children die each year and many more suffer from water borne diseases. The Pakistani government estimates nearly 5 million people were affected by the recent drought

That’s why we’re raising £35,000 for a solar water village in Tharparkar. Nearly a thousand people from a hundred different households will have improved access to clean drinking water. We’ll also help install solar lights, construct latrines and improve security by training people on climate resilient agriculture and livestock techniques.
