800,000,000 PEOPLE NEED BASIC WATER

SAFELY MANAGED WATER

We want more than basic water for the world. We want safely managed water. To that end, One Million Wells will need to overcome the mindset of the water industry that all a charity need do is furnish the lowest quality water. Our equipment is designed to build a water network that is able to supply safe water in a household tap to a large fraction of the world.

Current equipment as used before our invention is both too expensive and incapable of installing enough high quality wells to make high quality "water for all" a reality. Our newly patented equipment will offer another avenue for the people of the world to acquire high quality water.

All of the drills below are donated by generous gifts from our donors.

OUR BASIC DRILL

We have the perfect program for small charities, churches or social organizations. We have equipment that costs between 250 dollars and 3000 dollars in the USA and is great for drilling in many areas of the world. So if you are called to drill in farming or rural areas of the U.S, Africa, India, Brazil or some other country, we can furnish drilling equipment that is within your budget. We are a charity and we can raise the money for your drill, or you can raise the money for your drill. Either way, you can afford to use one of our hand powered drills to install wells in areas around rivers and lakes or in mountain valleys. We will instruct you on the areas of the world where these drills work the best. Of course we will also donate these drills to individuals, and all the proceeds will go to furnishing drills to those without water throughout the world.

The perfect drill for emergencies and disasters

For the quickest access to a disaster these drills can be packed and shipped on the aircraft bringing in help to the area.
