WFE Update

This first year of our board has been dedicated to investigation of opportunities for us to train in development work and water technologies. We are developing ourselves as we develop our mission. To that end, some of us have completed either pump repair or water hygiene training– assembling and operating a chlorine generator that uses common salt as a water disinfectant at WaterStep in Louisville, KY. WaterStep trains volunteers, charities like us, as well as stakeholders on the ground, people with an investment in their own survival.They are also addressing Disaster Relief.

Our mission is not to offer services ourselves but to support organizations on the ground who have access to populations in need of clean water, sustainable farming, and training and education of girls and women as the water keepers. Our model for helping in sustainability is B2B. Here is an organization in Niger in desperate need.

We have concluded that we cannot go to the Sahel region of Africa because of the political climate and extreme danger. That’s why we are investigating the opportunity to work with other organizations in areas and countries with some infrastructure where development work can operate more openly. Meanwhile, we will seek help, raise money, and help develop resources for inaccessible populations like those of the Azawak served by AmmanImman as we continue to train and develop ourselves in safer regions. Please be aware that just $5 can help either WaterStep or AmmanImman address starvation and death from waterborne illnesses.



"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
