Our current projects
Low Cost, High Impact Water Reservoirs in Haiti
Access to clean, fresh water is a crisis people face in Haiti every day. In the Belle-Vue la Montagne, Kenscoff and Aux-cadets’ regions east of Port-Au-Prince, where there is no running water or electricity, it is not uncommon for over 2,000 people to depend on a single water source for their daily needs.
Gathering water becomes the single biggest burden for these families, consuming daily life and taking children out of school as they face the daunting and often dangerous task of collecting the water. This crisis of having access to clean water is a faced everyday by thousands in this community living on less than $2 a day.
Build 40 Reservoirs by 2020
We already have 9 reservoirs built since we started the project in May of 2019!
Join us in partnership to bring desperately needed water to this area through a simple, yet highly effective method of building individual 5,500-gallon concrete water reservoirs for vulnerable families. The water to fill the tank comes from rain water collected on the roof and piped to the reservoir. With proper management, a reservoir of this size will provide an abundant supply of sustainable water for a least one year.
Families will be free to begin working themselves out of the chain of poverty that binds them as water will be readily available and free from water related diseases, since clean water practice training will be implemented with each reservoir. This water project will also help to keep children in school as less time collecting water means more time in class. And finally, sustainable agriculture will be possible and farm animals will be healthier due to the increase access to water.
