You can give the world's poorest people clean water.


Every year HOPE International Development Agency donors support between 50 to 65 initiatives in as many as 20 countries worldwide, many of which give people access to reliable supplies of clean water right in their communities.

You can give to support these featured initiatives or you can give to where most needed at this time within our clean water efforts.


Southern Ethiopia - Clean Water

Donate to give clean water to one person in Bonke


Of the 80 million people who live in rural Ethiopia, 51% lack access to clean water, and 72% lack access to proper sanitation.

Since 2000, HOPE International Development Agency has helped 300,000 rural Ethiopians gain access to clean water, right in their communities in southern Ethiopia.

Within the next 5 years, 100,000 more people in southern Ethiopia will gain access to clean water. When clean water is present, families are able to focus on improving their lives through health education and hygiene training. They are also able to increase their income by participating in self help groups that provide mutual support, income-earning skills training, and low-interest loans that enable women to start businesses.

Given the remote and rugged terrain of southern Ethiopia, it costs $750 to provide clean water for one family. That's just $125 per child or adult, for a lifetime of clean water and all that comes with it.

You can give one child clean water, for life, for just $125.





Mindanao, Philippines

Donate to help indigenous families


Nearly 5.6 million people do not have access to clean water in areas where HOPE International Development Agency is working among indigenous families.

Close to 75 percent of the population depends on farming for their survival.

Preventable illnesses, such as diarrhea, are among the top five causes of illness and death. Malnutrition is also currently a big problem for families.

You can help ensure that indigenous families in the Philippines gain access to clean water, and training and support that will create a sustainable source of food and income.






South Sudan

Donate to give a child clean water, education, and hygiene training


Life has been horribly difficult for children in South Sudan. They desperately need the kindness friends of HOPE International Development Agency can give.

Many of these children, like Nyanath, have lived through the trauma of armed conflict.

Some, like Deng, have lost loved ones or friends - something no child should have to go through.

All of these children have experienced the suffering that drinking dirty water can cause.

None of these children has had the opportunity to sit in a classroom and learn the skills that will free them from poverty. It does not cost much for you to become a child’s friend. However, as you can see, it costs a child far more if they do not have a friend. Providing one child with clean water, education, and hygiene training costs $150.

You can become a friend to a child in desperate need by giving what you can to help provide a child with what they need to become healthy, educated, and free from poverty.

You can help give a child clean water, education, and hygiene training for as little as $25.



 

India

Donate to give a biosand water filter to a family in India


Having water can be as deadly as not having water. In many communities, water is only available every few days, at community taps. The water is often contaminated and can cause serious illness or even death.

You can give an easy-to-make and maintain biosand water filter that purifies contaminated water and ensures that clean water is available for a family, right at home.

You can give a biosand water filter to a family in India for as litle as $60.



 

Parrequena, Guatemala

Donate to give clean water to one person in Parrequena


Mothers in Parrequena, Guatemala, are worried, and for good reason. “Children drink contaminated water,” says one mother, knowing that there’s literally nothing she can do about the skin infections caused by the water they gather and use.

Many mothers experience chronic back pain from carrying water containers every morning that weigh as much as 10 to 20 kilograms when full. Their bigger concern, however, is that their children are constantly sick from drinking the contaminated water from their current water hole.

HOPE International Development Agency is helping mothers and their children gain access to safe drinking water. When the water system is complete, safe water will be piped right into Parrequena, saving mothers, and their children, a lot of time, stress and sickness.

You can give clean water to one person in Parrequena for as little as $80.
