The partnership hopes to help people around the world to gain access to drinking water.

The partnership aims to improve and save lives by using renewable energy and water innovation technologies to provide more efficient and sustainable water access. Several upcoming ADRA projects will start using Grundfos products, including single solar panel-powered water pumps to replace hand pumps and automated water dispensers.
 
Utilizing Grundfos' solar-power technology, ADRA has created an innovative water kiosk model where customers can get clean water, purchase hygiene supplies and other basic household items from a menu, connect to Wi-Fi, and learn more about various hygiene topics through videos displayed on digital screens at the front of the kiosks.
 
ADRA plans to install the first of these water kiosks in southwestern Haiti this June, providing greater access to water for communities still recovering from Hurricane Matthew's devastation. Water kiosks are also planned for 2017 in Mozambique, recently hit by an El Niño-induced drought, and Nepal, where safe water access is still needed in areas affected by the country's devastating 2015 earthquake.
