Who we are...

Water For All Organization is non-profit organization with its aim of bringing water and sanitation to schools, homes and health centres in different regions in Africa. Most vulnerable are the girl child and mothers, as they are the ones in charge of cooking, washing and keeping their sanitations clean.

Most affected are arid and semi arid areas which get very little rains fall or non. In recent years due to climate changes, in most parts of Africa, this has affected the rainfall batten, hence making sources, water springs, rivers, dams and wells to either dry up or reduce the water level drastically.

Dams building

Most communities which are prone to this scarcity of water are in semi arid areas where they don’t get enough rainfall that can sustain water supply throughout the year. In such communities, a case study in Kenya, Massai community, Akamba community, Samburu community, Trukana community,  these are pastoralist communities where they get most of their income through livestock. Their livestock need water to drink, at the communities need water too for their daily home use. These are the areas wfao recommends digging and constructing dams for these communities.  During the high rain season, they direct all the rain water to their dams for preservation, to be used during the dry season which takes 3/4 months of the year period.

Tanks building 

Water tanks are very common and important ways of rain water harvesting, this are recommended in institutions like schools and hospitals or health centers. These institutions are mostly build roof using iron sheet. With the use of this roof, gutters are connected to collect the rain water direct to the tanks for preservation. From the tanks it can be piped to different uses, sanitation, kitchen or live stock drinking point, toilets etc.

Water Tanks

Sand water Harvesting

This kind of harvesting is common in areas where the soil is mostly sandy, during rainy season it collects sands as in most cases it’s loose and wash it down stream to the rivers. Such areas have several deep gullies and deep streams.  This streams and gullies are the one wfao broke and build a wall across it to prevent the sand from being washed away, with time the sand piles up, underneath it leaves clean water which is connected out through a pipe across the lower side of the wall, where clean water is fetch.

Pore holes 

For permanent solution, pore holes solve the water problems in mostly dray area, which experience drought throughout the year. It’s expensive venture but it brings long term solution. Water for all organization (wfao) coordinates with donors, cooperates, partners and volunteers to enable, drill pore holes to supply water to needy institutions and surrounding communities, 

Wells 

In Area where there in enough rain falls through the year, wells are another method of water storage, wells are normally shallow with an approximate of between 20 to 30 meters deep the ground. Since such area receive enough rain full, the water table in high. WFAO encourages for well that are maintained and build slightly above the ground to avoid running of surface dirty water running into these wells.  Installing simple mechanism of fetching these water from these wells like pumps are advisable through most people are ok by fetching using robes.

Piped water.

In area areas where there are high hills, WFAO assist the community in building tank on top of the hills, By using diesel or electrical pumps, water in pumped from the rivers, pore holes, dams or any other available source, passes through treatment plant and end up in tanks on hills. Through gravity pipes are laid to different institutions like hospitals, schools and the surrounding communities homes.
