Sustainable Water access:
Water for Good provides access to clean water and works to make a lasting improvement in people’s lives in one of the world’s most neglected countries, the Central African Republic (CAR). Water is the first step out of extreme poverty, and for 10 years we have worked to meet this immediate need, using water as a tangible way to improve lives in villages across CAR. Water for Good implements water projects through teams of Central African staff, bringing local knowledge and life-changing water to war-torn villages. Our teams have drilled 590 new wells, each well serving an average of 500 people—but new wells are just the beginning!
Real transformation happens when the water keeps flowing, year after year, and communities can focus on becoming more prosperous. Maintenance teams visit each of the wells in the program on a regular basis, replacing worn or broken parts, and making sure the water keeps flowing. Through these visits, we build relationships with communities and work with them to initiate projects that will empower the community.
