World Wide Water Shortage, Draught and Its Impact 

780 million people live without clean drinking water & More than two billion people worldwide rely on wells for their water.

About 4.5 billion people globally – already live within 50km of an “impaired” water resource – one that is running dry, or polluted.

By 2025, an estimated 1.8 billion people will live in areas plagued by water scarcity, with two-thirds of the world’s population living in water-stressed regions.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the largest number of water-stressed countries of any region.More than one-third of Africa’s population lacks access to safe drinking water.

At Saadhake, helping to the  people and Communities is helping to ourselves, we  inpsired to install and maintain the  State of The Art Solar Water Pumping & Purification Systems to fulfill dreams of the people who are really thristy in Deserts to Remote Villages.

Approach and Execution Strategy for Water Drinking and Farming Projects

1) Right from inception identify the key local volunteers and Involve them to help them selves and communities to be part of the on going water projects and work with local governments to follow the procedures and guidelines.

2) Identify the water Resources Like rivers, lakes, creeks and Ground based resources

3) Explore the possibility to  pump and fill the water tanks from above sources through solar, wind, or conventional energy pumps sets based on local situation and availability

4) Establishing the overhead tanks at strategic locations

5) Setting up the water filtration plants

6) Distribute the water to the people nearest places through pipe lines and establish booster pumps if pressure needed.

7) Exploration of the drilling the ground for underground water and establish either hand pumps, or solar or Wind or electrical power pumps to bring the water to surface and filter the water and store in the tanks and then  ready to use.

8) Setting up the water heaters for cold places if necessary

9) Setting up procedures and training the local people to maintain these systems on long term basis and watch remotely to help them when ever there is a need with out breakdown.

10) Move on next project..

11) Help in all respects if any well designed  projects on hold or half way completed  because of financial resources or some other reasons.

Perhaps Earth is the only known planet in our current times and easily accessible to us in this universe that has water and life. As we all know, it is very difficult to live without water and this is the first basic need of any living being. This underlies importance of water in our life as vital and central piece for all forms of life and plays an important role in our world. As we strive for a happier and more fulfilling life, we can draw a lot of inspiration from water. Despite being soft and humble, it goes through the rough hard rocks because of its patience and persistence.


So when life throws obstacles in your way, be like water and either go through them or form a new path that will lead you to your goals and dreams. Thousands Have Lived Without Love, Not One Without Water. Water is our Best Friend for Life. Pure Water is the World’s First and Foremost Medicine.  Water is the Best Natural Remedy for a Better Health. 



Viewed from space, the most striking feature of our planet is the water. In both liquid and frozen form, it covers 75% of the Earth's surface. It fills the sky with clouds. Water is practically everywhere on Earth, from inside the planet's rocky crust to inside the cells of the human body. This detailed, photo-like view of Earth is based largely on observations from MODIS, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, on NASA's Terra satellite. It is one of many images of our watery world featured in a new story examining water in all of its forms and functions

Distribution of the water on Earth

Ocean water: 97.2 percent

Glaciers and other ice: 2.15 percent

Groundwater: 0.61 percent

Fresh water lakes: 0.009 percent

Inland seas: 0.008 percent

Soil Moisture: 0.005 percent

Atmosphere: 0.001 percent

Rivers: 0.0001 percent.


Water is a precious resource .The human body is composed of about 70 percent of water . Water is considered as a renewable resource because it can be used and replenished through the water cycle . However, over time, the percentage of usable water keeps reducing as population increases and more water gets polluted . The increasing population growth strains natural resources, including the renewables . With rising population, the demand for water and freshwater sources increases and gets used, faster than it can be renewed . This can lead to water shortage and can make water a non-renewable resource . Scarcity of freshwater would affect businesses too since water is a resource that is shared and upon which direct industrial operations, supply chains, brand reputation, profits and expansion opportunities depend .Freshwater sources such as aquifers, lakes and rivers are also affected by population growth because they are used for supplying water to communities .

Here, 21 facts about freshwater are listed that we might be unaware of and which are crucial for conserving water.

FACT 1. 97 Percent of the Water on Earth is Saltwater

FACT 2.  For Producing 1 Kg of Cotton, 20,000L or More Water is Needed!
