Providing a safe water supply to a developing rural village forms an essential part of poverty reduction and has immediate and long term positive impacts on villages, school and Health Centre facilities.
Our commitment to results
To enhance quality project delivery, transparency and accountability to our donors and the greater public, the following goals and targets outline the success measures our programs use and the outcomes we expect to achieve.
It is a priority to have impactful programs that create tangible and quantifiable outcomes to reducing poverty in our target communities and result in high-value return on investment for our donors. Value for money is achieved through aligning our projects to communities where a large number of people will be affected. Our target communities population ranges from 500 to 2000 people, therefore each project gains 'economies of scale' and a significant impact is achieved.
