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.
