As the Iyilik Denizi Foundation is well aware of the fact that water, one of the numerous blessings of God, is crucial for living creatures, we drill "water wells" especially in African countries where severe drought conditions prevail.
At Iyilik Denizi, we believe that Clean water and sanitation are among the most powerful drivers for human development. They extend opportunity, enhance dignity, and help create a virtuous cycle of improving health and rising wealth.
Iyilik Denizi Foundation aims to contribute to Achieving the Sustainable Development Goal target for drinking water
Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target 6.1 is to “achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all by 2030”.
What We're Doing?
Since 2018, Iyilik Denizi Foundation has been working in many countries around the world especially in Africa to providing remote villages and vulnerable communities with access to clean safe drinking water:
Build and sustain Safe water source and sanitation facilities
Installation and repair of solar water wells
Installation Of water pumps
Community Wells & Deep-Water Bores
Hygiene and sanitation training
Sewage management systems, public sanitation facilities with latrines & showers
We operate water supply tankers & build desalination plants.
Why we are doing it?
Because access to clean water improves...
When students are freed from gathering water, they return to class. With proper and safe latrines, girls stay in school through their teenage years.
Safe water, clean hands, healthy bodies. Time lost to sickness is reduced and people can get back to the work of lifting themselves out of poverty.
Access to water leads to food security. With less crop loss, hunger is reduced. Schools can feed students with gardens, reducing costs.
Access to water can break the cycle of poverty. The communities we serve are ready to grow. We can't wait to see how they choose to do it.
