Enable the community of Barangay Sab-a to improve their health and use their time for economic development by building and maintaining a sustainable safe water & sanitation system.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The 661 residents of Barangay Sab-a struggle to meet their daily water needs. Women and children must walk an hour to the nearest water source. Latrine usage is poor, contributing to a high incidence of diarrhea. Barangay Sab-a can pay some of the capital costs of and all maintenance costs for a new water system. Our Philippine partner organization will work with the people of Barangay Sab-a to develop and implement a sustainable community water supply and sanitation system.
How will this project solve this problem?
Ensure that residents use improved hygiene practices; provide enough safe water to meet every resident’s needs; ensure that every household has access to a latrine; and ensure a lasting water supply by protecting the new water sources.
Potential Long Term Impact
Provide long last water supplies for the 661 residents of Barangay Sab.
