800 million people globally do not have access to improved water supply sources with 350 million people in Africa alone lacking access to safe drinking water. About 2 million people die every year due to diarrhoeal diseases, most of them children under the age of 5.  Unsafe water directly affects every area of development: health, education, productivity, agriculture/food security, the environment and gender equality. Without equitable access to water, it compromises a community's ability to thrive.

UNSAFE WATER INHIBITS ECONOMIC GROWTH

At FACE Africa, we believe in access to safe water and sanitation as a catalyst for change and real transformation in rural communities. Our projects reduce water and sanitation related disease burden, increase productivity, promote human welfare and set communities on a path towards long term sustainable growth, development and poverty reduction. More importantly, we have a particular interest in empowering young girls and women through access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene - giving them the chance to reap the health, economic and educational benefits.



                         

THE IMPACT

It is our mission to bring clean drinking water to some of the most remote areas in Sub-Saharan Africa. With your help we can realize our dream of providing 100% water coverage to each community we work in. Our newest initiative will provide 100% clean water access to the entire county of Rivercess, one of the poorest and least developed counties in Liberia. Our goal is to construct 250 water access points by 2015 which will benefit over 60,000 residents in Rivercess County. 

This March, join us as we raise $250,000 to provide 12,000 people with access to clean water via 30 water projects in Rivercess. Your contribution will get us one step closer to our goal by rehabilitating a non-functional water project that will impact 400 lives.

Every donation counts. Be the Solution and Give Clean Water TODAY.
