Important Fact!

Globally, 1 in 9 people still have no access to clean water. But in the communities we serve, it’s 9 out of 9. Water is a daily and crippling challenge. Without water you can’t grow food, you can’t build housing, you can’t stay healthy, you can’t stay in school and you can’t keep working.

Today, hope is on hold in over half of the developing world’s primary schools without access to water and sanitation.

Access to Clean Water Improves...

Education

When students are freed from gathering water, they return to class. With proper and safe latrines, girls stay in school through their teenage years.

Hunger

Access to water leads to food security. With less crop loss, hunger is reduced. Schools can feed students with gardens, reducing costs.

Health

Safe water, clean hands, healthy bodies. Time lost to sickness is reduced and people can get back to the work of lifting themselves out of poverty.

Poverty

Access to water can break the cycle of poverty. The communities we serve are ready to grow. We can't wait to see how they choose to do it.

Actions..

Network for Water and Sanitation (NEWAS) is a non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing reliable water projects to communities in sub-Saharan Africa who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation.

For ten years, we have been helping communities gain access to clean, safe water by providing training, expertise and capacity development support for water project construction through our staff and implementing partners.
