Can you imagine living without quality water, sanitation, or food?
For those living in developing countries, these basic needs do not exist. 2.3 billion people around the world do not have access to adequate sanitation, 892 million people still practiced open defecation, 2/5 people used safely managed sanitation services 1.06 billion lack access to electricity, 3 million still use fuels like wood, charcoal, coal, and dung for cooking and heating. 780 million are still without access to clean and safe drinking water. More than 800 children die each day due preventable water and sanitation related diarrhea.
Phase I of our program focuses on developing and funding projects to enhancing sustainable systems so that residents can have some of the most basic needs.
We think partnerships with local agencies and other non-profit organizations will create jobs and is the only way to achieve long-term sustainability. We believe our local partnerships and experts will provide the opportunity to best use of our low staffing model and expenses.
