In many parts of Africa, Humanity First has teamed up with IAAAE to build and renovate
water handpumps. HF has worked with IAAAE in Kenya, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Mali, Benin,
Togo and Ghana. A couple of years ago, HF also invested in its own drilling rig, and now the
team have been working jointly to build new boreholes across Benin and Togo at a much
lower cost and with greater control in maintaining quality. The team are also training local
water engineers and exploring emerging technology to proactively monitor the quality and
pressure of water, and to reduce the mean time between failures of hand pumps.
