Southeast Clean Water Project
A child happy to see that he now has clean water
The Impact of the Southeast Clean Water Project: 110,000 Haitians in the Southeast of Haiti – utilizing 12 community water stations and 12 school water kiosks – have permanent access to clean, safe water.
The word about our low-cost chlorinators has spread throughout Haiti, especially in the Southeast Department of Haiti. 54 schools and communities have requested our help because they need access to treated water.
The Southeast Department Water Project is an extension of our work in the West Department Clean Water Project. We treat water at schools and on public kiosks and reservoirs with our chlorinators, water tanks, and pumps. The Government in Haiti is really starting to take notice of our work in the Southeast. We met with the Director of DINEPA, Haiti’s water agency, and agreed in principle to sign an accord-cadre (partnership agreement) with DINEPA. This major breakthrough will help fulfill our goal to provide clean, safe water to every resident and student in the Southeast of Haiti.
Below are the communities, schools, and public buildings that now have clean water because of our efforts in the Southeast. The Phase II sites are the installations we have accomplished over the past three months.
In Phase I of the Southeast Water Project we installed chlorinators in 12 schools (16,810 students), 2 public water stations (1,116 families), 1 hospital (20,000 patients per month), 1 police station (50 police officers monthly) and to the Police Station in Cayes-Jacmel benefiting 50 police officers and surrounding residents per day.
