We’re Partnering with WaterAid America

Water for Empowerment is partnering with WaterAid America to energize a new program in Nicaragua which develops micro-enterprises for young women living in poverty and without access to clean water and sanitation.

The pilot program has proven effective but it needs a caring sponsor. That’s why Water for Empowerment has committed to raising $90,000 ($30K each year for 3 years) to support and improve access to clean water and hygiene in peri-urban areas of Nicaragua. Specifically, the project will fund:

  • The improvement and disinfection of existing hand dug wells
  • The drilling of borehole wells
  • The promotion of household filters
  • Hygiene promotion
  • The installation of eco-friendly pour-flush toilets

We are very excited to be launching our new organization with this worthwhile project to empower young women in Nicaragua who need our help.



"The participation of women and girls is essential if we are to achieve access to water, sanitation and hygiene education in Nicaragua. What's more, when women are empowered through microfinance projects they generate household income that supports the broader needs of their families. As a result, investments in safe water and sanitation bring wider and more profound changes to the lives of women, their children and generations that follow."
- Joshua Briemberg, Director, WaterAid Nicaragua
