WHY WASH?

Diarrheal diseases kill approximately 1.8 million people per year. Globally, approximately 2.5 billion cases of diarrhea occur among children under 5 years of age every year. About 80 percent of those cases are in Africa and South Asia. The World Health Organization (WHO) and World Bank promote access to water, sanitation, and hygiene as the most efficient and cost effective intervention to reduce this tragic statistic. Besides combatting diseases such as pneumonia and diarrhea, improved WASH access also addresses a wide range of lesser known, but nevertheless debilitating, tropical diseases. These illnesses often are neglected by an overwhelmed medical system in developing countries.

HOLISTIC APPROACH

Improving health and transforming lives requires a holistic approach that focuses on infrastructure, education, and community engagement and integrates proper hygiene into a comprehensive program that also addresses clean water and sanitation. We work to generate locally sustainable impact in each community we serve, which requires a localized approach and long-term investment strategies to avoid the type of unintended consequences that often come with humanitarian aid and international development work. Around the world we currently focus on seven strategic program areas.
