Our Work In Haiti
Pure Water for the World opened its doors in Haiti in 2008 serving schools, orphanages, health clinics and hospitals with clean water filters, as well as providing education to schools and communities about safe hygiene and sanitation practices.
After the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010, we shifted our focus to emergency aid, partnering with Save the Children to deliver clean water to victims of the earthquake, particularly within the highly underserved community of Cité Soleil.
Today, we continue our commitment to serving the people of Haiti, focused on community-wide access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education.
We partner with entire communities and work directly with families, in their homes, to increase community-wide engagement, ownership, and effectiveness.
We implement comprehensive water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programs in schools. These programs include clean water filters, gender-specific latrines, handwashing stations, hygiene education (including menstrual hygiene education), teacher training, monitoring and follow-up.
