A Public-supported, non-Profit organization set up under Section 42 of the Companies Act, 2017. Rural Areas Water Association Pakistan was established in 2017. It has earned a resonating reputation within no time for its qualified leadership and performance oriented approach.
The prime aim of RAWAP is social welfare through provision of the system of clean water to the rural areas. It is an organization which is committed to reduce the water woes of the rural areas and to make the lives easier for the inhabitants.
The Rural Areas Water Association recognizes the importance of water for the poor. Accessible domestic water supplies, even if shared by a large number of households, can make more and better-quality water available for family needs, reduce female drudgery and slash the incidence of debilitating water-borne diseases. In fact, studies have found that water supplies are often at the top of the list of what the rural poor ask for themselves. Many villages in the rural areas of Pakistan still lack even a communal well with a hand pump. There are some cases that well is installed but the hand pump has been broken for years, and people have returned to their original and often remote water sources. Inadequate access to domestic water is particularly difficult for women and girls.
