Impact and Programs
We created a record 60 community managed clean water wells in rural Haiti in 2015 and another record 62 community wells in 2016, trained local water management committees for each to maintain them, delivered sanitation education to these communities and motivated people to increase the number of latrines, impacting about 15,000 people.
Achieved and maintained a record 95% of households having latrines in communities where we have educated and intervened with our CPE model of potable water and sanitation training.
Mapped 3 entire Departments out of the 10 in Haiti, pinpointing all water sources, natural and man-made, and classifying the man-made as functional or dysfunctional, potable or not potable, and also mapped the geology for probability of finding subterranean water and mapped all the houses and buildings in those 3 Departments.
Achieve a new, 3rd year in a row record of 65 community managed wells.
Increase the number of communities that are open defecation free and maintain or improve the 95%+ record of household with latrines in areas where we intervene.
Become an increasingly public thought leader in sustainable development for potable water, sanitation and hygiene in developing countries.
Increase the number of board members from 12 to 20
