The World Health Organization (WHO) claims that too much money is spent by charitable organizations on water provision compared to money spent on hygiene education. Charity water organizations seem to be popping up everywhere these days! It's so easy to put in a well, take a quick photograph and move on...But clean water without hygiene education is only about 15% effective at eliminating waterborne disease, which remains the #2 killer of children in Africa second only to Malaria. We do both!
Hydrating Humanity is a non profit organization that works primarily in East Africa using education to reach an entire generation and bring effective, sustainable change. Education is a big part of what we do.
As of January 1st, 2013 our Charitable Organization completed 196 charity water projects in Kenya and Tanzania and can confirm that due to our rigorous maintenance program, everyone one of our hand pumps remains operational today. Please visit our Clean Water Sources page. We are the only Non Profit Organization that offers ongoing maintenance after the fact.
Providing clean water is just the beginning...we hope you enjoy our website.
