WfM operates in a rural region with high unemployment. The project has multiple aims. The basic aim is to provide clean water as the base for further development and health. The techniques to achieve this are labor intensive and create manufacturing units as well as items for trade. Paid work is created for the women’s groups who are the core of the project as well as for the workers, craftspeople and sales personnel involved in this. Income is generated at the local level. The import of „plug-and-play“ technologies with which it is also possible to generate clean water is avoided by WfM as much as possible.
