Summary

Deep Springs International is a non-profit organization that provides a solution to the water crisis in Haiti, with the goal of sustainability. Using a simple and affordable chlorine system, we empower individuals to provide safe water to their communities as a sustainable business. Even the poorest families can treat their water with this system, regardless of the source. Deep Springs expanded programs significantly to respond to the 2010 earthquake and the ongoing cholera outbreak.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Haiti was rocked on January 12, 2010 by a devastating 7.0 earthquake followed by at least two aftershocks. Over 200,000 people perished. In a country where the majority live on less than two dollars a day and lack access to basic necessities such as food and water, Deep Springs International (www.deepspringsinternational.org) is striving to make a lasting difference.

How will this project solve this problem?

We locally produce and distribute the Gadyen Dlo brand liquid chlorine solution and an in-home water treatment systems called the Bucket of Life through sustainable Haitian social enterprises designed to eventually operate independent of charitable aid. When aid leaves, we stay.

Potential Long Term Impact

We impact the lives of Haitians long-term by providing a safe-water solution that is locally managed, affordable, sustainable, and effective. We establish and help build to scale Haitian-managed social enterprises using a Haitian-made solution.
