A Sustainability problem
Without proper education and empowerment, many of The donated water systems can fail
Every year, water projects, started in developing countries, fail due to inadequate education and setup. That ends up being millions of $ going to waste. Wells and water pumps go bad and are then abandoned. Water filters aren't cleaned and therefore stop working and are also abandoned. The time and energy spent to establish many of these water systems is lost when proper training and education isn't also included in these new water system.
Many projects are not followed up with proper education or support. And in some cases the people trusted to continue the system after they are implemented aren't able to do the task - leading to failure or even some cases corruption.
Donations and charity can only go so far, but educating the people and empowering them so that their systems can be sustainable after implementation is the best way of addressing the water crisis
