Context

Recently a Worldbank blog mentioned the study "The rising tide" indicating that women and girls in Sub Saharan Africa spend 40 billion hours per year on collecting water. https://blogs.worldbank.org/water/women-and-jobs-water.   One option to reduce the time to collect water is having a well at or near the household.   There are affordable water technologies for small communities and households, for example, EMAS technologies. In Bolivia over 70.000 household wells of 20 to 50 m deep were drilled commercially at a cost of $200 to $500 (including pump). Other low-cost well drilling options are SHIPO (rotary) jetting, and Mzuzu drill. Low-cost pumps include EMAS, rope and ZL small solar pumps. Rainwater storage options include the EMAS underground and wire brick cement tanks. Options for groundwater recharge at the household level include Tube recharge. For water treatment, there is a range of household water filters and for sanitation there are Satopans.

Low-cost water and sanitation technologies are often fit for so-called Self-supply so families fund part or 100% of their own water supply. The recently published book “Self-Supply”[1] indicates that over 1 billion people worldwide have Self-supply and an estimated 80% of all Self-supply systems are wells. Scaling up water at the household level has much potential to help in reaching Sustainable Development Goals for water, poverty and food.

The training in low-cost technologies includes the demonstration of a range of improved or new (proven) affordable technologies for wells, hand and solar pumps and household water filters that are affordable for families. The course is hosted by the organization Aqua Clara in Kisii with support and trainers from the EMAS foundation and the SMART Centre Group who have long term experience in Self-supply including Mr Wolfgang Buchner and Jaime Perez of (EMAS), and Mr Henk Holtslag (SMART Centre Group). Corona related measures will be taken into account.

Training on these low-cost water technologies was held in Malawi in 2021, see also https://smartcentregroup.com/
