SPONSOR A CLEAN WATER TAP
WELCOME TO AMBODIRANONAMBILONA, MADAGASCAR.
CURRENT ACCESS TO SAFE WATER: 0%
In Ambodiranonambilona, Madagascar, building a tap will mean so much more than just water. Water is: opportunity, joy, equality, health and education.
Those living in hard-to-reach areas can be forgotten entirely, making their open sources of water rarely safe. When open to nature, water sources can be contaminated with industrial waste, animal faces, parasites, and waterborne diseases like cholera. They are also unreliable, drying up or running out. This means needing to find a new source, which in most cases would be miles away.
WATER IS: LIFE, FREEDOM & CHANGE.
Our mission is to provide a water facility that is local, using untapped natural resource, and that is owned collectively by a community.
THE COST OF IMPLEMENTING & MAINTAINING THIS CLEAN WATER INFRASTRUCTURE IS $25,000.
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP!
SPONSOR A TAP - $3,000 DONATION
Install & Inaugurate
Your donation will provide one reliable and sustainable water supply technology.
Providing a local source of clean water can drastically reduce the amount of time women and children need to spend collecting water, and vastly improves their health. It also opens up opportunities for women to earn an income themselves and for children to attend school.
ADVOCATE SUSTAINABILITY - $1,500 DONATION
Build & Sustain
Your donation will provide training to communal water and sanitation committees, sanitation education for local volunteers, the training of latrine masons, and supplies to ensure upkeep of a new community tap.
It takes a village to build and maintain a safe water source in a community. Each community that WaterAid Canada + H2OCanada supports actively involves the community in the planning, implementation and sustainability of the project. Community members help build the taps that provide for their families and local leaders are trained and empowered to maintain and sustain each facility for the future.
