Help raise $15,000 for WaterAid in support of clean water and sanitation initiatives in northern Nicaragua. Currently, 800,00 lack clean water and 2 million lack sanitation in Nicaragua. We want to change this by empowering women and girls to become clean water leaders in their communities through vocational training and microfinance opportunities.
Be part of the solution.
The women in the program receive job training to build latrines and rainwater catchment tanks, repair water wells and pumps, and educate families and schools about hygiene. This project helps break the cycle of poverty because women are able to lift communities up by providing access to essential clean water and sanitation.
Your donation will have a lasting impact.
Consider this - $10 from 1,500 people would hit our campaign goal and impact a community of 750 people.
- $30 pays for 1 pit latrine for a family.
- $50 pays for 1 rainwater harvesting tank.
- $100 pays for two hand pumps for water wells.
- $500 pays for latrine construction and maintenance services for one family.
- $1,000 pays for water and sanitation vocational training for 30-40 young women.
- $2,500 pays for three new water well installations and maintenance costs.
- $5,000 pays for clean water and sanitation facilities at a school or health clinic, which includes vocational training, a water well and sanitation/hand washing facilities. This donation level impacts 250 people.
We cannot do this alone. We need your help.
Water is one of the most basic needs for human life and we believe everyone has the right to clean water. We need your help to make this a reality! Every donation from this campaign will be used to empower women and girls in Nicaragua through clean water initiatives.
"The participation of women and girls is essential if we are to achieve access to water, sanitation and hygiene education in Nicaragua. What's more, when women are empowered through microfinance projects they generate household income that supports the broader needs of their families. As a result, investments in safe water and sanitation bring wider and more profound changes to the lives of women, their children and generations that follow." - Joshua Briemberg, Director, WaterAid Nicaragua
