Solar powered water well in rural Africa

Access to clean water is a daily challenge some populations in various parts of the world especially in some countries in Africa face today. Non access to clean water contributes to the spread of waterborne diseases including typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery and diarrhea.

In many cases the water is just, 30-80 m (100-260 ft.) below. Drilling a water well combined with a submersible pump to get the water to the surface can be prohibitive.
