AfriSam-PlayPump-sponsorshipMore than 1 200 PlayPump systems already installed in rural parts of South Africa, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland and Zambia, are, with the power of children’s play, bringing clean water to about two million people. By 2010, the combined efforts of PlayPumps International  and the international organisations or individuals that fund the set-up of the PlayPump systems aim to have installed 4 000 pumps in 10 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, making clean drinking water accessible to up to 10 million people. Expansion over the next few years will see PlayPump systems in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, and Uganda.
