Pure Water Solutions

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to every community’s water problems

We give homes, schools, and communities the equipment and training they need to eliminate waterborne disease in Haiti and Honduras.

The results can transform a village, practically overnight. learn more

WE GET OUR HANDS DIRTY

Among non-profits, Pure Water for the World is more hands-on than most. Ninety percent of our staff is in the field in Haiti or Honduras – installing point-of-use filtration equipment, building latrines, educating communities about waterborne disease.

We Get Our Hands Dirty

Staff in both countries is often local, born in the communities they now serve. This makes it easy for them to understand the community’s needs, and efficient in fulfilling them.

Pure Water for the World is lean — and fiercely determined to make the most of every dollar it receives. Our funding comes from other non-profits, from governmental sources, and from generous individuals. We stretch every penny to its limit. read more

WE INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY

Our goal is to eliminate diarrheal disease in the communities we serve using practical, simple, sustainable tools. It’s essential to work closely with the community so that they understand what we’re doing and are fully vested in the project.

We involve the community every step of the way 

Briefly, our process goes like this:

WE Involve the community

  • Meet with community members to discuss their needs and objectives, and fully involve the community – especially women – in all aspects of planning. Our goal is for the community to take full ownership of the program.
  • Install appropriate, simple, sustainable, point-of-use filtration technology to purify water in homes, schools, and clinics.
  • Install sanitation facilities as needed.
  • Educate the entire community about good hygiene practices.
  • Give extensive supplemental hygiene and equipment training to teachers and community leaders.
  • Provide additional technical training to community agents
  • Return after three months to reinforce training and handle any problems.
  • Return at seven months to thoroughly evaluate program effectiveness and quantify the changes made to the community. We are constantly exploring ways to improve our programs.
