World Vision believes every child deserves clean water, which is why they are committed to doing everything possible to help solve the global water crisis within our lifetimes.
World Vision is reaching one new person with clean water every 30 seconds, and provides more people with clean water than any other nongovernmental organization. Their model, much like Free the Children’s, gives communities ownership and training in maintenance of water points so that water continues to flow after their work is completed.
This charity travels the world to find inspiring organizations who are providing long-lasting water and sanitation services, then fund their most successful programs. Their focus is on providing clean water for many years for communities and not just temporary fixes.
They’re approach is:
Planning (choosing a location, finding the right technology, and selecting a partner)
Implementation (determining project cost, establishing, following timelines, and working on local governments)
Maintenance (ensuring sustainability,and monitoring and evaluating)
UNICEF’s main objective in the area of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is to contribute to the realization of children’s rights to survival and development that increase sustainable access to, and use of, safe water and basic sanitation services, and promote better hygiene. WASH is directly related to the Millenium development goals, and has worked to achieve their goal of clean water globally. Learn more here: http://www.unicef.org/wash/index_3951.html
