Community Development

Once a deep-capped well is provided, villages can get involved with additional opportunities that continue to enhance and improve their community.

Some of these opportunities include:

  • Medical & Dental Clinics* - Occasionally clinics are provided to help address any illnesses and disease caused by years of contaminated water.
  • Regional Repair - We train individuals as Regional Repair Representatives who then work with the local water committee to keep the water well in good working condition.
  • Hand Washing Stations* - Regular hand washing is perhaps one of the most effective ways to prevent water-borne diseases. We provide a simple hand washing station, complete with soaps and skilled in-country facilitators who educate villagers on hand washing and sanitation issues.
  • Maternal, Newborn and Child Health* - Reducing the mortality rate of women and children, improving access to clean water, providing training in healthy practices and gender sensitivity, and increasing absorption and consumption of nutritious foods by mothers, pregnant women, newborns and children under the age of five
