Pakistan Hand Pump Water Well

Build a Hand Pump Water Well in your name, or that of a loved one, and uplift impoverished communities throughout Pakistan.

We’re setting up Hand Pump Water Wells throughout Pakistan’s most impoverished communities in this blessed month to put an end to this water crisis and will save lives and regenerate whole communities for generations to come ensuring that no individual has to go without safe water to drink and for everyday needs.

We can place a plaque in your name on the well, and we will send you a report with key information about your well including where it is built and who is benefiting. If no name for a water well is given in the ‘notes’ section, when donating, Greengate Trust will set the plaque to the name the donation was made in. 

Notice: In response to escalating material costs, we've had to adjust the price of hand pump water wells in Pakistan to £250. This ensures the continued delivery of top-quality builds. As we navigate these changes, we deeply appreciate the understanding of our valued donors. Your unwavering support is crucial in sustaining our mission for clean water accessibility. Together, we make a lasting impact.

Every moment is a precious opportunity to make a difference within the lives of those who need it most. Seize the moment today for the most vulnerable in Pakistan and help someone in need.

Give A Beautiful Sadaqah Jariyah

The Prophet (PBUH) described providing drinking water as the best charity. A well is a Sadaqah Jariyah; when you provide a water well to a vulnerable community, you reap the rewards for years to come, as the well continues to provide clean water year after year.

‘The Messenger of Allah ﷺ  was asked, “Which charity is best?” He (saw) replied, “(Providing) water”’.

Abu Dawud

Every 12 months our team in Pakistan will visit each well and complete a monitoring and evaluation report.

We check to ensure the well is working correctly and carry out any maintenance work that may be needed. The cost of this process is included within your donation, so you don’t pay anything extra.

All donors will also receive their own individual well-completion report via email

On the authority of Sa‘d bin ’Ubadah  that he said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Umm (mother of) Sa‘d has died, so which charity is best?’ He (saw) replied, ‘[Providing] water’.  He (ra) said, ‘So [Sa’d] dug a well and said, “This (well) is for Umm Sa‘d”’.

Donate a Hand Pump Water Well in Pakistan, where communities are facing severe shortages of clean water.

Water is the key to all life. Yet in Pakistan, 21 million people lack access to clean water, and as a result, 40% of all deaths in Pakistan each year are caused by unsafe, dirty water. Providing clean water is a beautiful act of Sadaqah Jariyah, as every drop helps to save and transform lives across generations for years to come.

Let’s join hands to make a difference for Pakistan make a donation today!

You will receive an email confirmation (please check your junk), our team will then start the process, once completed you will receive a feedback report with further details and images.

We aim to complete all wells within 9 months of your donation, however at certain times of the year it may be completed sooner or take a little longer. We work closely with the team on the ground to make the process as quick as possible.

The common depth of our wells is 150-250 feet, depending on when we reach clean water.  

Although it is impossible to give an exact lifespan, our wells will average between 10-15 years.  

Our team in Pakistan perform annual monitoring and evaluation visits on every well and should any maintenance work be needed, we will cover the cost.  

We send out a feedback report for each well which contains some general information on the well, some images of the well being built, some images of the well in use and some details of the location, should you wish to visit.  

We ask donors to allow our field team to make this decision, as they are aware of where the most need is at the time of the donation.  

Ideally, way say or one or two full names, along with a short message such as "In Memory of". Although there are no restrictions on how much text can be put on the plaque, this will affect readability and result in the font size being smaller than the images you may have seen on our website and social media. Please note we are unable to accommodate images, symbols, any other language than English, or anything that may be deemed offensive. 


Please note, videos are not included as standard. The build team always try their best to capture a video of each well, but due to time restraints is not always possible. If a video of your well has been captured, it will be sent to you after you have received the feedback report, this being the priority.

Unfortunately, we are not able to give regular updates on progress, due to the admin time it would take and wanting to keep costs as low as possible, to continue to be a 100% donation charity. After the initial communication, the next communication you will receive is the feedback report, by email.

All donors will be contacted within 10 days to set expectations and give them timescales.
