We are fundraising to purchase the PAT-Drill 301T which is a trailor-mounted, compact hydraulic drilling rig for use in difficult environments. This drilling machine is a fully featured top drive rotary rig able to complete holes in hard rock environments like Zanzibar.
The Al-Ansari Foundation’s mission is to significantly contribute towards achieving universal and sustainable access to clean and safe drinking water through innovative solutions that positively impact the health and well-being of people living in desperate situations where people have no access to clean and safe drinking water.
We are committed to accessing remote locations and islands to ensure that every child in Zanzibar has access to clean water.
This drilling machine will enable the charity to dig 2-3 Wells a month compared to the normal 2 months it takes for wells dug using hand drilling methods.
The charity hopes to be able to provide a service to both the private sector as well as the poor community. The profits from private services will be re-injected into the charity projects namely providing water to schools, mosques and remote villages where children are found to be walking several hours in search for water.
