Here’s tangible results of the impact you make possible. Construction crews in Burundi are hard at work on the Bitoke-Kiriza Extension Water System thanks to your generosity. Read the latest progress update, the trench being dug here will soon bring clean water to 668 students and teachers at Kiriza primary school that’s visible in the background.

Impact You Make Possible: Solid Investment That Sparks Economic Growth

Impact You Make Possible: Solid Investment That Sparks Economic Growth

We’re happy to share construction progress Bitoke-Kiriza Extension Water System. This project is on time, and on budget. When it’s complete 2,100 residents will have daily access to as much water as they need. Access to water is a solid investment that sparks economic growth.

According to World Health Organization, Every $1 invested in clean water can yield $4–$12 in economic returns. Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school and fight poverty.

Your support has made this progress possible. Thank you!

New Water System You Made Possible

New Water System You Made Possible

You made it possible! Your generosity inspires us!  This week construction of a new water project is set to begin. The scope of work and schematic drawing give the nuts and bolts but not the human impact. Follow along to see the progress from delivery of supplies to digging trenches where PVC pipes will be laid to the faces of the children and families that will be able to turn on a spigot — that’s close to home — and get as much clean water as they want. You made this possible. Thank you!

An Update from the Field: Our current projects

We are excited to share the latest updates from our two current projects, fully funded at the 2017 Spring for the Water. Thank you for helping us transform lives forever. 

Women at the Karuhaya-Kuntatemwa project celebrate the completion of the first tap stand. Women and children are usually tasked with fetching water for their families and are most impacted by the completion for a water system.
