Christmas Giving

We’re giving water this Christmas...

Sustainability Consult is supporting Pump Aid this Christmas, buying an Elephant pump for a community in Africa.  Elephant pumps can provide 40 litres of clean drinking water each for 250 people.  We believe access to clean water is the fundamental building block for education and development.  The Elephant pump provides enough water for small-scale irrigation and agricultural projects and can make a huge difference to a community.

To see more about Pump Aid Elephant pumps, see the YouTube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBjVyNse_xI.

Pump Aid

Pump Aid tackles poverty in rural Africa by working with local communities to establish sustainable supplies of clean water for improved health and increased agricultural production. Pump Aid builds appropriate technology water pumps that can be maintained by poor rural communities without any outside assistance. For more information, visit www.pumpaid.org.
