Clean Water & Sanitation

Clean water is a holistic issue

It affects health, safety, education, and economic empowerment—and can change the game for vulnerable communities.

CLEAN Water & Sanitation

Since 2004, we’ve been committed to drilling clean water wells, launching market-driven water solutions, and providing necessary sanitation facilities in some the world’s most vulnerable communities.

It is why we challenge ourselves to innovate and constantly improve the quality of our approach to serve hundreds of thousands of people across Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mozambique, and Cambodia. Today, people are living healthier, more productive lives because of access to clean water.

What we’re doing about it

We are responding to the need for clean water & sanitation.

Clean Water Wells

Using local engineering teams, we drill water wells in communities, schools, hospitals, and other public institutions that lack a clean and sustainable water source. Local leaders are trained to maintain the water source long after the drilling is done.

TapEffect

TapEffect offers a market-based solution for households in rural Cambodia to have access to clean, piped water. As a result, women—upon whom the majority of the clean water burden falls—can have clean water piped into their home for drinking, washing, gardening, and more.

Solar-Powered Water Desalination and Distribution Center

Developed in partnership with GivePower and West Indies Self Help (WISH) to address the lack of clean water access on La Gonâve, Haiti, this center provides a 3-part solution that uses clean energy, draws upon local resources, and will self-sustain—all while presenting locals with opportunities for entrepreneurship. When fully functional, the center will produce 20,000 gallons per day of both tap and bottled water for the local community and businesses like the hospital. 

Solar-Powered Piped Water Supplies

We construct solar-powered water systems for health clinics, providing access to the water needed to properly clean and disinfect facilities. These include a water well, solar panels to generate power for an electric pump, and a tower to store the pumped water—creating the ability to run water piped into a building.

Sanitation Facilities

Access to clean toilets and sanitation facilities play a critical role in preventing the spread of disease. We support the construction of sanitation facilities at schools, households and medical clinics using local materials and community leaders who are trained to maintain them.

Our Impact

In 2017, we celebrated our clean water & sanitation impact.
