Glasgow Clyde College and AquAid

Glasgow Clyde College sponsored pump

At Glasgow Clyde College we are aware that keeping our staff and students hydrated will help them to perform at their very best throughout the day. As a result, we decided to invest in water coolers from AquAid

Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given Glasgow Clyde College the opportunity to help those less fortunate, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to The Africa Trust.

These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much-needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.

Glasgow Clyde College has so far sponsored three pumps through this partnership, including one in Gushure Village, Makoni District, Zimbabwe, pictured.

To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe; and have donated more than £20 million to charity.
