Water, sanitation & hygiene

Water, sanitation & hygiene

Access to clean water is at the center of many of our projects across the communities. From improving healthcare infrastructure, to helping farmers take their businesses to the next level, to caring for refugees who are escaping violence, we can’t do our work without clean water.

Too many people around the world are going without water because of challenges like violence and drought. Farmers, communities and families alike are suffering the consequences of going without clean water, like waterborne diseases affecting their families’ health, their livestock dying of dehydration, and being unable to water the crops that feed their families.

That’s why we work with local governments and community groups to rebuild water infrastructure, rehabilitate water facilities in schools and hospitals and more. We bring water to areas that are in crisis. We are helping increase water and energy infrastructure to bring better water and sanitation facilities to schools and other community institutions in need. 

Our Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programs, commonly referred to as CLEAN WATER FOR ALL (CWFA), help increase water and sanitation infrastructure in over different communities all over the world. In 2019, we helped over 1 million people improve their access to clean water. 

So much of our work starts with clean water. It helps communities grow and reach their fullest potential. When everyone has access to clean water and optimal hygiene and sanitation services, they can work toward improving their livelihoods and communities.
