Water scarcity exists all over the world. Water for All Canada is currently funding home installations for water and waste-water systems in a First Nation community in northern Ontario.
This large-scale project targets 19 villages and 2,844 households with an estimated 14,220 direct and 42,660 indirect beneficiaries. In total 26 water points will be established, meant to ensure that at least 70% of the people in the targeted area will receive water of adequate quality.
Over 27 villages are part of this project, with a total population of around 50,000 people. The main aim is to reduce the over-dependency on the monsoon rains by supporting new ways of rain harvesting, facilitating a more long-term water supply both for drinking and agriculture.
Since 1984 Water for All is supporting projects that give people in need access to clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. It is the Atlas Copco Group’s main community engagement initiative financed by voluntary employee donations which are boosted two times by the company. All in all, around 2 million people have received access to water thanks to Water for All.
Supported by the entire Atlas Copco Group
