Clean Water, Clean World

FairWater is a Dutch Foundation with a Social Enterprise approach, our mission is “Clean Water in a Clean World”, without corruption, fake-results with “Scrap-Pumps” and charity-scams.

The BluePump is the symbol of “clean water in a clean world”. When you see a BluePump, you can be sure it’s from a “clean” NGO that is really committed to help.

Unfortunately, often the poor do not benefit from “aid”.

Fact: Billions of US$ did not result in sustainable water service for the poor people in rural Africa.

Scrap-Pumps” all over Africa.

Such poor quality material for the poor is un-acceptable. This must change. However, there is no indication that the Water Aid Sector is committed to use better handpumps, see the SKAT/UNICEF 2010 report below.

What is the solution?

First of all, people need better waterpumps. Therefore we developed with Oxfam-Kenya a reliable community handpump that lasts 25+ years with hardly any need for spares or maintenance; the BluePump.

The best solution is to replace all broken pumps in Africa by reliable BluePumps; “cost a bit more, last a lifetime longer”.

Our impact since 2010:
With our partner NGOs we realised over 1.000+ BluePumps in Africa, of which over 80 directly sponsored by FairWater sponsors.

Local partners
Local Partners install & maintain the BluePumps. This creates trust, local employment and low-cost sustainable operation.

Track record
See for instance our Sanex Zero%  sponsor project, where we replaced in 50 villages broken pumps by a BluePump, for 25.000+ people.

Why BluePumps? 10 strong points:

1. The Bluepump piston has no rubber seal. Other pumps have seals that wear out.

2. BluePumps have double stainless steel, long lasting foot valves. Other pumps have only one valve.

3. BluePumps use quality PVC pipes and stainless steel rods. Other pumps have serious rusting problems.

4. BluePumps use heavy duty bearings lasting 10+ years. Other pumps have fragile (plastic) bearings.

5. BluePump rods use long lasting, floating double centralizers to make pumping easy.

6. BluePumps are reliable even at 80+m deep. Other pumps fail beyond 40m.

7. BluePumps are lighter to operate and produce more water than other pumps.

8. BluePumps are easy to install & maintain with only standard tools. Other pumps need special tools.

9. BluePumps are installed & maintained with guaranteed back-up of spares whenever needed.

10. BluePumps are cheap (less 25 US$ per year) to operate; Other pumps need up to 500,- US$ per year.

Disclamer: We are not saying that all NGOs do not perform. We simply agree with the SKAT/UNICEF 2010 report, that NGOs have a very poor record. Therefore a better approach is needed. In our opinion, this should start with using more reliable handpumps.
