Field Notes

Thanks to our local partner Catholic Relief Services, support from the surrounding community, and your generosity, 169 people in Burkina Faso have access to clean and safe water!

You helped fund a water point and sanitation for a School in Burkina Faso, implemented by our local partner Catholic Relief Services. We rely on the expertise of local partners like Catholic Relief Services to choose the best solution for each unique situation. In this case, Catholic Relief Services’s thorough understanding of how to implement effective, sustainable water projects in their area led them to choose a rehabilitated water point and sanitation.

After our partner works with the School to assess their specific needs and determine the best solution, the School will receive a water point paired with sanitation facilities, which include a block of latrines or toilets and handwashing facilities.

Even the best solutions can experience problems. Previously-built water projects can be rendered unusable due to lack of maintenance, environmental conditions, or other extenuating circumstances. When this happens, our local partners look to rehabilitate broken solutions whenever possible, saving both time and money. We also invest in new maintenance models so the communities can prevent future breakdowns. The end result is a restored water point that brings clean water back to the community.

Along with implementing water projects, our local partners also facilitate sanitation and hygiene initiatives to help promote everyone’s long-term health. These initiatives are often championed by community members themselves, who work hard to create positive change within their School.

Clean water means education, income, and health—especially for women and girls. It truly changes everything. Thank you for funding clean water and transforming futures for 169 people in Burkina Faso!

The remainder of the cost of this project was funded by individual donations for a total of $226.90
