Clean Water
Here's how it's done.
Sierra Leone faces major challenges in safe water provision, particularly in rural areas where over 50% of the population lacks access to an improved water source. As in other parts of sub-Saharan Africa, the lack of access to safe water or to any other means of purification means that rural households are forced to boil water in order to purify it, thereby causing significant damage to ecosystems and releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This project works in Sierra Leone, to rehabilitate and maintain boreholes and to ensure that good sanitation practices are followed in communities. The sanitation element is crucial, as it is crucial to keep the area around the borehole free of contamination to ensure that safe and clean water continues to flow for the community. This is greatly reducing pressure on the forests by reducing the need for firewood, whilst ensuring that time spent collecting water and firewood is greatly reduced for all community members, in particular women and children, on whom the burden of these tasks falls disproportionately.
Better together - Our partners.
This project ist certified by the GoldStandard. Gold Standard was established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs to ensure projects that reduced carbon emissions featured the highest levels of environmental integrity and also contributed to sustainable development.
Have a look.
Our partners are actively engaged with locals to ensure everything goes as planned.
Over 60% of Sierra Leoneans live on less than $1.25 per day, with the vast majority of the rural population lacking access to improved water sources or sanitation facilities.
