Supporting AquAid

We're delighted to partner with AquAid

AquAid Water Coolers

Here at Brightec, we are aware of the importance of looking after our staff and providing a safe, enjoyable and productive working environment.

We're also passionate about making a difference to those people, whether locally or further afield, who are stuck in poverty, illness or other life oppressing circumstances. 

A good investment

To help us care for our staff and make a difference beyond, we decided to invest in water coolers from AquAid.

Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given us the opportunity not only keep our staff members hydrated, but also to help many disadvantaged people. Because with each purchase (through AquAid) an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust.

Elephant pumps

Our donations to the Africa Trust enables funds to be 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. It will be a much-needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.

The Brightec name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding a photo and a letter of thanks from the villagers to our website in the near future.

Supporting AquAid

To date, AquAid have built over five thousand such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia. And have donated in excess of £10 million to charity.
