HERE’S HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
It starts with a drop: of money, time, and compassion which Drop turns into wells, sanitation, and education creating a ripple effect that improves health, empowers women, and uplifts economies… building into powerful waves of change – that make the world a better place.
We’re working to eliminate poverty and water related illness on three fronts
WATER & SANITATION
In addition to wells, we install flush latrines at schools, and provide materials to teach students about proper sanitation.
This information then spreads throughout the village, further reducing sanitation related illnesses and deaths.
Any development project is only life-changing if it stays working for a long period of time. With this in mind all of our work is designed with sustainability in mind.
understanding how and why projects fail key in solving sustainability issues.
GENDER EQUALITY & EDUCATION
While water and sanitation are undoubtedly important, education has always been the most important way to help people move themselves out of poverty
With this in mind Drop in the Bucket started an education program that provides secondary school scholarships to girls in South Sudan and Uganda.
The Alero Health Center III did not have its own source of clean water. It did have a rain water harvesting tank, but the extreme weather resulted in an empty tank, leaving health center staff to collect water from local sources every morning.
