Appropriate Projects is an initiative of Water Charity, conceived to slash through the red tape and get projects done immediately.
Access to safe water is a human right, and we are fighting to achieve this goal for every person on this planet. We will not sit around while people are dying and suffering from illness due to lack of water, contaminated water, and unsanitary conditions.
We use appropriate technology, meaning that the simplest and least-expensive methods are utilized to bring about the biggest impact at the least cost.
We do not deal with studies, reports, evaluations, nitpicking, reviews, administration, overhead, talk, delays, processes, procedures, format, overseeing, micro-directing, or excuses.
We start with the understanding that there are about 9,000 Peace Corps Volunteers stationed in over 74 countries around the globe. Each Volunteer is living in a city or community making a great contribution toward world peace.
Each Volunteer is competent and dedicated, having gone through a rigorous selection process, and having trained for the tasks to be done.
Each Volunteer has identified crucial projects that will affect the lives of those around him, but remain undone due to lack of funds.
Each Volunteer has the skills and capacity to work with communities, clinics, schools, and other NGOs to assist them with their projects and ensure that they are completed on time and within budget.
The projects submitted to Appropriate Projects by Volunteers on behalf of other organizations are small, but they indeed have a big impact.
At the same time, there are millions of individuals around the globe who would like to do the right thing, to help those in need, and to make the world a better place to live.
Your contribution will bring to being a needed project in a distant place. It will affect the lives of individuals and communities, by letting them have the necessities of life.
Join our fight. Adopt a project.
