Over 12 Million People Now Have Access to Clean Water
Though our Village Drill sites expand across about 40 countries worldwide, our main focus is still each individual we have not reached. With our innovative approach, we have seen incredible progress in these areas where our model is in use. Here is just one example:
First, the school experienced a 30% increase in attendance. Girls who once missed school to fetch daily water for their families were now able to attend class.
Second, the school no longer needed to purchase its own water. Instead, the school leaders began charging a modest water fee to the community, generating $12 a day in usage fees. This amounted to over $4300 in annual revenue, a positive net gain (along with the saved government budget) to now purchase supplies, compensate teachers, and even take care of general repairs and maintenance!
