A recent graduate from the London School of Economics (LSE)
in Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Saqib has been recognised by Forbes for
his charitable project in rural Sindh and Balochistan which aims to give
thousands of people access to clean water.
According to Forbes, “Bilal Bin Saqib is founder of Tayaba,
a social enterprise that aims to provide solutions to the water crisis in
Pakistan. One of its initiatives is the ‘H2O wheel,’ a plastic wheel container
connected to a metal bar that helps to reduce the burden on women and children
who carry water in rural Pakistan for miles each day. The wheel can carry up to
40 litres of water, which is eight to 10 times more than what a mud pot
(traditionally used to carry water) can hold.”
The project was launched four years ago to help Pakistan
deal with its water crisis.
“This idea originated after I travelled to West Africa, where I saw people pushing or pulling clean water in plastic containers attached to steel bars.” – Bilal bin Saqib.
