International Action

International Action collaborates with partner groups and local communities in Haiti to build up local capacities in water resource management; raise the public's awareness of water-related health issues; advocate for water-related policies and development priorities that ensure equitable and affordable access to clean water for all; and support community-based water purification and distribution projects. We have also been involved with rural water projects in Honduras and China.

200,000 more children to benefit from International Action's deworming program.

We have identified over 200,000 children at clinics and schools in the areas we serve who desperately need albendazole (deworming medication) to rid and then protect them from intestinal worms. Since 2008 we have provided deworming medication to over 1.5 million children. Most of the kids we will help this year are in rural towns and villages. Below is our distribution plan for 2013.

International Action and Voice of Haiti to become one -- together helping over 300,000 every day

International Action and Vwa Ayiti (Voice of Haiti) are pleased to announce our merger this upcoming January! 

Our organizations have been operating in Haiti since 2006 and collaborating since 2010, creating a great deal of synergy in both technological development and project management. International Action provides municipal water treatment to urban neighborhoods in Port-au-Prince and surrounding regions, while Voice of Haiti provides treatment in underserved rural communities. 

It is our common belief that access to clean water ensures a solid foundation for good health – the key to community development – empowering both families and individuals.  Combined, we have provided clean water to 975,000 people!  We will keep you informed as the merger approaches and ask for your continued support.

Together we will become stronger, more efficient, and better positioned to fulfill our common goal of providing clean water to over 1 million people in 2014!  

 

Best Regards,

The International Action Team

Students to lead education about clean water, International Action to install more chlorinators

Abigail (14), a leader now and in the future
Abigail (14), a leader now and in the future

This is Abigail. She is 14. Abigail has big dreams. She wants to be a doctor. She wants to have a big family when she grows up. She wants to speak five languages. She wants to be a leader and help improve the community around her. She wants to start with clean water.  

There are 1,200 children like Abigail at the CFM school in downtown Port-au-Prince. Thanks to International Action’s chlorinator, Abigail and her classmates are healthy because they have clean, safe water every day. Abigail is one of the student leaders at CMF and she wants help spread the word about the importance of clean water, how it improves people’s health, and in turn, their happiness. 

Abigail and the director of the school want to start a community service project in which student “Clean Water Ambassadors” visit other schools to teach their peers about potable water. They have asked our staff to lead a week of seminars and trainings for the new Clean Water Ambassadors. The program will begin September, 2013, as the current school year has already come to a close. They plan to reach at least five schools in 2013.   

Abigail wants to lead change, she wants to help other Haitians protect their water supplies. We are with her. With your support we can support the Clean Water Ambassadors and install chlorinators in more schools. 

 

All the best,

Zach
