Who supplies the material for DIGDEEP’s water projects?
Materials vary tremendously by location, partner and project. DIGDEEP sources materials from a number of vendors with whom we have negotiated favorable terms and even sponsorships. Sometimes DIGDEEP works with local businesses (like well drillers) who procure their own supplies.
Most DIGDEEP projects also require a community buy-in: some material contribution from the local community hosting the water project. This often includes a contribution of in kind supplies like bricks, aggregate, sand and gravel. Sometimes the contribution is monetary, a portion of the project cost. Each community buy-in is determined jointly by DIGDEEP and our local partners and is based on the situation of the community in question.
