WHAT WE DO
As an initiative of Water
Charity, we do small but critical water and sanitation projects. Each one is a solution to a problem, costs no more than $500, and uses appropriate technology. We start them at once and complete them very quickly.
We partner with Peace Corps Volunteers serving throughout the world, who identify, implement, manage, and evaluate the projects. They work in concert with NGOs and governmental agencies near where they are stationed.
Each project has a high impact, resulting in clean water and effective sanitation for individuals, families, and communities.
We offer you, individuals and organizations alike, the opportunity to participate in our work, and fund these projects, in whole or in part.
We like simplicity, so that’s all there is to it.
ADOPT A PROJECT
If you would like to participate in the Appropriate Projects initiative, we invite your involvement.
Click on the PROJECTS tab and find a project you like. Then, we encourage you to fund it in full. In that way, you will be able to follow the project through, from start to finish, and gain the satisfaction that you have taken a meaningful step toward reducing death and disease.
If you are unable to fund an entire project, donations in any amount are accepted.
The Donate button below each project description is coded so that clicking on that button indicates to us which project you wish to support.
If you are a Peace Corps Volunteer and have a small water or sanitation project that needs funding and can be done at once, click the SUBMIT tab to read our simple guidelines and make your submission.
