The impact: education

2 hygiene trainers

24 trained technicians

950 Children in sanitation workshops

900 Men in sanitation workshops

1,300 Women in sanitation workshops

the impact: Lives changed

4,100 adults

1,900 children

2,000 people from connecting villages

 

the need: clean water

In this region of Nigeria, drinking water is still collected from streams and by digging into the sand.

This lack of infrastructure, accompanied by poor hygiene and sanitation practices, allows water-borne disease like Cholera, Hepatitis and Typhoid to spread quickly, causing sickness and disease.

 

the solution: three-prong plan

Hygiene Education

The community will be educated on the importance of sanitation practices. This will help decrease the spread of water-borne diseases. We will also train sanitation experts who will continue to teach the community the importance of hygiene practices.

Drilling Waterholes

Currently, women walk long distances to collect water from rivers, causing physical strain. The wells will be installed at the heart of the community, protecting their physical health and giving them more time to spend with their families.

Building Toilets

Due to increased sanitary awareness and proper facilities, there will be a reduction in illness and the spreading of diseases. Mortality rates among children are expected to drastically decrease and medical expenditure therefore greatly reduced.
