Since 2015, we have served nearly 55,000 people with water, sanitation, income generation, and empowerment. This is only the beginning.
BY THE NUMBERS
A few overall impact metrics
Have access water, and improved sanitation facilities throughout 17 communities.
Majority women, have emerged and been given a voice and responsibility that allows them to guide their community towards development.
Now have better learning environments in the school with water, sanitation and menstrual hygiene centers.
All these children have been taught about personal hygiene and agriculture.
Increased School Attendance
There has been a 30% average increase in attendance rates, and a 36% increase in enrollment. Within all of the communities we have done projects in, pre-project attendance rates averaged 61%; contrasted by an average attendance rate in all schools, 3 months post project, at 92%.
Reduction in Disease
In a recent Water Underground study in a school, 38% of children tested positive for the parasitic disease Schistosomiasis, with 82% testing positive with trace worms. After our project was completed only 2% had trace elements of worms, and zero with Schistosomiasis.
We observed a 97% reduction of cases and a complete elimination of cases of Schistosomiasis.
Wells are working
Our goal was to never be among the statistics that plague the global water sector where more than 60% of wells fail with 2 years due to poor drilling practices and lack of maintenance training by well-intentioned organizations.
After 7 years of projects, every single well is still functioning and providing water for all the community with all committees in tact and performing their duties.
