This initiative works with local communitites in developing countries to find practical solutions to water, sanitation and hygiene challenges. In many African communities, we’re already noticing exciting health improvements.
The Likimse Clean Water Project in southern Ethiopia is a wonderful example of how World Vision is directly helping at-risk communities. Now complete, the project has brought fresh, clean water to 64,000 people. Water pipelines, capped springs, several more water collection points, new toilets and training locals to maintain their safe water supply have all contributed to a significant increase in the health and productivity of this community.
Elsewhere, there’s still much work to be done. World Vision currently has a number of water and sanitation projects underway in various African countries including Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. All involve simple yet long-term solutions for the communities concerned..
