Clean Water & Sanitation

Clean water is a holistic issue

It affects health, safety, education, and economic empowerment—and can change the game for vulnerable communities.

CLEAN Water & Sanitation

Since 2004, we’ve been committed to drilling clean water wells, launching market-driven water solutions, and providing necessary sanitation facilities in some the world’s most vulnerable communities.

It is why we challenge ourselves to innovate and constantly improve the quality of our approach to serve hundreds of thousands of people across Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mozambique, and Cambodia. Today, people are living healthier, more productive lives because of access to clean water.

Changing Lives on a Global Scale: Why World Hope International is Acumatica’s 2018 Non-Profit of the Year

Giving a hand up (not a hand out) to those suffering from poverty is a foundational value for World Hope International. Their global efforts to “empower, protect, and build resiliency” are supported by Acumatica’s cloud ERP solution, and the global relief and development organization’s efforts have earned them Acumatica’s 2018 Non-Profit of the Year award.

THIRST: Searching for Clean Drinking Water on a Desert Island

“I had this idea that if you could just build a water cistern that can save the water and have it when it’s dry, that would be good. Having ocean water be drinkable would help so many people.”

When disaster strikes, supplying fresh water is vital for survival

When disaster strikes, supplying fresh water is vital for survival through the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery, World Hope International is turning ideas into action by supplying fresh water to remote communities in the Caribbean in the aftermath of natural disasters.

Problem

Worldwide, more than 2.5 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services—more than 1/3 of the global population.

World Health Organization

Problem

Water-related diseases kill 1 out of every 5 children under the age of 5 globally each year.

World Health Organization

Problem

Dirty water kills. More people are killed every year from dirty water than all forms of violence, including war.

What we’re doing about it

We are responding to the need for clean water & sanitation.

Clean Water Wells

Using local engineering teams, we drill water wells in communities, schools, hospitals, and other public institutions that lack a clean and sustainable water source. Local leaders are trained to maintain the water source long after the drilling is done.

TapEffect

TapEffect offers a market-based solution for households in rural Cambodia to have access to clean, piped water. As a result, women—upon whom the majority of the clean water burden falls—can have clean water piped into their home for drinking, washing, gardening, and more.

Solar-Powered Water Desalination and Distribution Center

Developed in partnership with GivePower and West Indies Self Help (WISH) to address the lack of clean water access on La Gonâve, Haiti, this center provides a 3-part solution that uses clean energy, draws upon local resources, and will self-sustain—all while presenting locals with opportunities for entrepreneurship. When fully functional, the center will produce 20,000 gallons per day of both tap and bottled water for the local community and businesses like the hospital.

Solar-Powered Piped Water Supplies

We construct solar-powered water systems for health clinics, providing access to the water needed to properly clean and disinfect facilities. These include a water well, solar panels to generate power for an electric pump, and a tower to store the pumped water—creating the ability to run water piped into a building.

Sanitation Facilities

Access to clean toilets and sanitation facilities play a critical role in preventing the spread of disease. We support the construction of sanitation facilities at schools, households and medical clinics using local materials and community leaders who are trained to maintain them.

Our Impact

In 2017, we celebrated our clean water & sanitation impact.

AN ORGANIZATION YOU CAN TRUST.

Spending of World Hope International (Canada) funds is confined to Board approved projects. Funds designated towards a project are used as designated, with the understanding that when the need for that project has been met or cannot be completed for reasons determined by the Board, the remaining funds designated will be used where needed most.
