RURAL COMMUNITY WATER PROGRAMME

RURAL COMMUNITY WATER PROGRAMME

Clean, safe drinking water is essential for life. In Nigeria, many children don’t have access to clean drinking water. The lack of access to safe drinking water often results in serious illnesses and death. This program seeks to provide water for rural communities  in Nigeria . YARPTI identifies such communities and partner to providing safe and clean pipe born water  for them

When a community gets access to clean water, it can change just about everything. It can improve health, increase access to food, grow local economies, and help kids spend more time in school

Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

43% of those deaths are children under five years old. Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16,000 lives every week.2

In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking for water.3 4

Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school — all of which fight poverty.

 

Clean water helps keep kids in school, especially girls.

Less time collecting water means more time in class. Clean water and proper toilets at school means teenage girls don’t have to stay home for a week out of every month.

 

Women are responsible for 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa.5

When a community gets water, women and girls get their lives back. They start businesses, improve their homes, and take charge of their own futures

We work to find the best sustainable  water solution for communities  , whether it’s a well, a piped system  or a system for harvesting rainwater. And with every water point we build we will coordinate sanitation and hygiene training, and establish a local Water Committee to help keep water flowing for years to come.
