Summary

International Action will provide clean, safe drinking water to five schools with 2,700 students. With your help, we can install water storage tanks and life saving chlorinators by August - before the start of the new semester.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Diarrhea is one of the most common and disruptive sicknesses that students in Haiti face. Many schools have no direct water source. This means that students either go without water during the day, or drink water that is contaminated. As a result, students become sick and miss school. In extreme cases, this sickness can be fatal.

How will this project solve this problem?

Chlorine kills germs. Our systems are easy to operate and the cost of chlorine is very low. With our installations, the students will have safe, treated water to drink during the school day. They can also bring water from the tank home with them to protect their families and to quench their thirst at night.

Potential Long Term Impact

We train school teachers to safely and effectively maintain our water systems. When the children drink this treated water and lose their bellyaches, their attendance at school goes up dramatically. The World Health Organization suggests studying school attendance - not medical records - to measure the impact of chlorinated water.
