Within 1 week, a local entrepreneur passes the Filter Fountain assembly, maintenance, and sales tests through hands-on training with their experienced entrepreneurs.  

Over the course of a month, the entrepreneurs go through biosand and sales training to become a self sufficient and profitable business. We Make Impact offers ongoing support as they grow their business including access to our partnerships, raw material discounts, Knowledge Library, and many more perks. 

 This approach empowers Water Entrepreneurs to sustainably get more and more people access to clean water – creating jobs & a ripple effect of positive change!

Protecting Tigrean Refugees with Clean Water

Recently, the Ethiopian government launched a military offensive against a rebellious regional government. Because of the war crisis in Ethiopia, there are close to 100,000 Tigreans that have been displaced. The conflict has created a great humanitarian crisis threatening the life of innocent Tigreans.

An area in eastern Sudan has become a temporary home of tens of thousands of Tigrean refugees who have fled their own country.

In the refugee camp, no clean water source exists. Refugees are sleeping in makeshift tents and in abandoned buildings, some even sleeping outside with no shelter. In many cases children and parents have been separated. Due to lack of safe water supply, the refugees have been suffering from water borne communicable diseases.

Yet we can make a difference in the lives of these refugees. By distributing water filters, we can save lives and help them stay strong during these difficult times. Would you partner with us as we come alongside the Tigrean refugees?

Kenya - Providing WASH Knowledge and Water Filters

300,000 children under 5 die annually from diarrheal diseases.

One of the most basic human needs is water.  Water is important for almost every aspect of life including drinking, washing, bathing, farming, and more.  Rural Africa has very limited sources of water that are clean, adequate, and accessible.  The majority of available water sources tend to be unprotected shallow wells, rivers, dams, and springs.  Consequently, many children and adults suffer from water borne diseases including cholera, typhoid, and amoeba.  More than 300,000 children under 5 die annually from diarrheal diseases due to poor sanitation, poor hygiene, or unsafe drinking water – over 800 per day. 

 

 

Earth And Water works in western Kenya with the mission to bring life to people through the most valuable resource on Earth – water. They have initiated small business development projects, school and household water filtration systems, well drilling, and various water development projects.  Earth And Water works to help communities in crisis by providing accessible and uncontaminated water sources along with education about water hygiene and sanitation.

 

Their first focus was drilling wells for rural communities, orphanages, and churches. These wells are hundreds of feet deep and provide clean water to those in need. Yet with the high cost of drilling wells, they are also looking to distribute more VF100 Home Filters as well as provide WASH training. Would you partner with Earth And Water so that they can reach even more communities with WASH training and clean water?

    Fighting the Cholera Outbreak with Clean Water

    Clean water is a need around the world, but sometimes there are disasters that make this need even more critical. The Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation (YRRF) who are taking action to help in Yemen. Currently, the country is experiencing the largest recorded cholera outbreak with over 2.3 million suspected cases. Additionally, various other water borne diseases are common and are resulting in malnutrition, especially among the children.  Providing clean water is key to preventing the spread of cholera and diarrheal diseases as well as improving the population’s health and reducing the risk of malnutrition.

    Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation is working to reduce morbidity and mortality in the hardest hit communities in Yemen. They are doing this by distributing Village Water Filters in addition to food and other supplies. The YRRF has distributed water filters to multiple areas including to Internally Displaced Populations. The members of the communities who received the water filters were able to provide clean water to their families, ensuring that they stay healthy and their children have a much lower risk of becoming malnourished.  

    They have had a great impact in Yemen, but they have received even more requests from multiple communities for water filters. The YRRF has goals to expand their reach with clean water. They hope to scale up access to clean water, but can not do this without your support. Would you like to partner with us as we come alongside the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation?

    Their vision is to lift up whole communities: individuals, families, institutions, and enterprises, so that they may reach new levels of development.
