Poshte Water ProjectDid You Know?

  • More than 750 million people lack access to clean drinking water.
  • In Latin America, nearly half the population living in rural areas is without access to improved sanitation services and approximately 20 percent is still without drinking water.
  • About 2.5 billion people (half of the developing world) lack access to improved sanitation.
  • Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every ten hours. (World Health Organization – 2012)
  • Carrying heavy water containers long distances to their homes is usually the job of the family’s women. They spend on average 3 hours every day at this task.

Our Mission

  • Help small, rural communities develop and maintain access to safe, year-round drinking water.
  • Preserve and protect watersheds that provide water to these communities.
  • Provide training and education to local people in maintaining drinking water systems, improving hygiene and protecting watersheds so they will have autonomy with respect to water needs.
  • Partner with other organizations to carry out this mission.
