Programs

Our work revolves around three platforms focused on COMMUNITIES: Safe Water Supply: Planet Water's AquaTower solution supports the daily drinking water requirements of up to 1,000 people, can be operated without power or use of chemicals harmful to the environment, and requires no consumables with a very simple maintenance process. Our water projects are deployed in a single day and transform entire communities - not only through the improved health and well-being of having access to clean water for the first time, but also through the immediate impact on the lives of people (typically women and girls) who walk hours a day collecting water. Hygiene Education: Commencing with the installation of our AquaTower, our Water-Health & Hygiene program educates children on the important aspects of hand washing and protecting against germs through a child-friendly, activity-based program incorporating games, drama, song, and dance. We also have an exciting partnership with Sesame Workshop which incorporates multimedia content, featuring Elmo and their family of Muppets, into our hygiene education program. This collaboration also includes a series of public service announcements that are being broadcasted on national television networks across Indonesia, the Philippines, and India. Sustainability: Our support to a community does not end with installation of our AquaTower - this is where it begins! We conduct periodic, sustainability visits to all projects for a period of five years. We have also recently formed a partnership with the University of Nebraska, College of Public Health focused on assessing the longitudinal health impact of our safe water, sanitation, and hygiene education interventions and designing and implementing community-based health interventions that reduce the incidence, prevalence, and impact of waterborne disease.
