Clean Water Systems
Our programs allow for people to build and grow their communities away from poverty through sustainable safe water systems and education on health & hygiene.
Disease is among the top contributors to the perpetuation of poverty with waterborne diseases being one of the highest contributing in developing nations.
Access to clean water saves lives. Many people are without clean water for daily living in the Dominican Republic as there are not even water lines to carry usable water to their communities.
We partner with local communities to establish sustainable wells that provide safe daily use water with the purpose of seeing communities thrive.
Clean Water + Education
We believe water is one of the ways to break the cycle of poverty and bring sustainable change.
Provision of clean water alone, however, will not improve health as there is an educational and awareness component that must be addressed.
Community wide "Health and Hygiene Campaigns" are a vital part of a water supply project. Knowledge and behavior change, as well as community involvement, are crucial for transformation.
Rural communities face the most challenges, as many people obtain their water from contaminated sources. Utilizing contaminated water for domestic use, leads to disease. Disease leads to loss of time, money, work and quality of life.
To bring hope to this situation, Every Day Hope collaborates with international partners, local organizations and communities to drill safe wells and construct water distribution systems.
Prior to installing a well, Every Day Hope establishes a community cooperative. The cooperative consists of a council of local people who oversee, direct, and manage the water distribution center. The cooperative is also educated on proper usage, regulations, and the maintenance of the system. They collect a minimal monthly usage fee from each family in the program in order to maintain the well for generations. This promotes sustainability and a positive approach to being the change.
Each well and distribution center impacts up to 50 families in the community. $30,000 for each set up covers the well drilling, reserve tanks, automated electric pump, and pump house with distribution center.
