Water & Sanitation
Because of your giving, Generosity.org has been able to build over 800 water wells in 20 different nations that deliver clean and sustainable water to over 500,000 people.
This is how Generosity.org is ending the clean water crisis
Step 1: Give Generously
The final cost of a water project is different in each community, but the first step is always the same… raising the money to make it happen.
Once a project is fully funded, which is in between $8,000 and $25,000 per well, then we send the money to our implementing partners who have committed to using 100% of all money donated to directly fund project costs.
Step 2: Target a Region
By targeting very specific regions in each country, our local partners are empowered to build trusting relationships with every community. They have the local knowledge and professional expertise to select the best locations for each water project to be completed.
Step 3: Collaborate with Local Partners and Officials
We collaborate with local partners in the field to identify locations, collect data, and when possible, connect officials to carry out the planning stages of each and every water project.
Step 4: Form a Water Committee
A water committee is a group of men and women who oversee the water project during and after construction. Each member is trained in maintenance and basic hygiene, and together the committee is responsible for keeping the water project up and running.
Step 5: Start Construction
Our implementing partners are experts in choosing the best water solution for each community. These most often include:
Step 6: Hygiene and Sanitation Training
Clean water solutions have a greater impact when they include comprehensive sanitation and hygiene training. Our implementing partners are responsible for educating community members and appointing local health leaders.
Step 7: Report Back
In 9 to 12 months, once a project is complete after being fully funded, we provide a full report including the project’s GPS coordinates, community information, and photos of the water project and community served – all connecting you directly to the people you’ve helped.
