Access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene changes everything
Reducing disease, saving lives
Since our beginning in 2001, we have improved the lives of more than 892,725 vulnerable people through the construction of over 1,166 community-led clean water projects and 1,245 latrines. These initiatives have reduced the risk of severe and debilitating diseases and even death, particularly amongst young children.
Empowering communities for sustained results
Our approach has strengthened the capacity of over 1000 communities in 16 countries. Through engaging the support and expertise of local partner organizations, we have established local water point management committees, on-going hygiene education programs, and have overseen the training of village technicians to ensure long term maintenance of wells and other clean water systems.
Improving safety and opportunities for everyone
Our work has provided over 892,725 people with readily accessible clean water and safe sanitation sites. With less time needed for their role in water collection from previously distant sources, girls are able to consistently attend school and women can dedicate their energies and skills to family and income generating activities.
Creating the conditions for brighter futures
Together, our initiatives have provided for the key necessities of life- the essential foundations for people and their communities to develop and grow through better health, higher education levels and improved opportunities to move from the harsh cycle of deprivation to a more promising future.
