Over 320 million people in Africa lack access to clean drinking water. Women and children especially spend hours walking to water sources and waiting in lines to get access to water. This has prevented some girls in sub-Saharan Africa from attending school, as a large part of their day is spent in fetching water. The Sunlight pump by Ennos can be used to set up drinking water kiosks in communities. Drinking water kiosks can pump water from a surface source. The water is then stored in an elevated tank, and treated so that it is drinking quality, before being distributed via multiple taps to give greater access to water for communities. Kiosks work by collecting a small affordable fee for drinking water, thus making the maintenance and operation of the system sustainable. The Ennos pump can be the perfect solution to make drinking water more accessible for families all across Africa.
