Waiakea Water: Serving the World

There are still millions of people all over the world without access to clean water and basic sanitation. In cooperation with Pump Aid, Waiakea water is striving to curb the resulting deaths by donating clean water to these needy people. Waiakea selected Pump Aid as a partner because of its focus on Malawi. According to recent studies, Malawi has one of the lowest daily water access and usages in the world. Most of the impoverished citizens of rural Malawi only have access to dirty water and poor sanitation.

The Waiakea team operates by working in cooperation with community members to install Pump Aid’s award-winning Elephant Pump. With the assistance of the community, Waiakea will dig a well and build and install the inner mechanisms. It is important that the community becomes instantly involved in building, installing, and continued maintenance since it will give them a sense of ownership of the pump. The work has Pump Aid has done much to help stem the global water crisis. As a result of what they have done, 1.35 people who would not normally have access to clean water do. They have accomplished this very impressive feat by building, distributing, and installing over 3,200 Elephant Pumps worldwide. These massively effective water pumps are based entirely on a 3,000-year-old Chinese design.

Waiakea hopes that they can assist with Pump Aid’s via this partnership. Waiakea produces and packages its water using renewable energy and the most environmental-friendly practices. The manufacture of the bottles used is also extremely environmental-friendly with 85 percent less energy used and 90 percent less carbon emissions than traditional manufacturing processes.
