Goal 7: Create healthy communities with clean water and sanitation.
Wells: In many regions, women and girls walk for hours every day to collect water that often isn't even clean. In partnership with other organizations, World Vision plans to drill 825 deep wells in rural West Africa that will bring the gift of health and clean water to nearly 500,000 people over a six-year period.
Water-storage containers: During the rainy season in arid regions, World Vision helps communities collect, purify, and store fresh rainwater in safe containers for use later in the year.
Water-piping systems: World Vision helps transform arid land into fertile fields through the construction of gravity-fed clean water systems. In southern Ethiopia, for example, formerly unproductive land is now bursting with food thanks to a system like this that benefits almost 64,000 farmers.
Protection of natural springs: World Vision helps communities protect natural springs from contamination by livestock and wild animals.
Purification of water: World Vision supplies equipment to treat and purify water contaminated by bacteria, pesticides, animal waste, and waterborne disease carriers.
Latrine construction: Because good sanitation helps keep water sources cleaner, World Vision provides waste product management to increase health and decrease disease.
Laundry pad construction: World Vision builds concrete laundry pads to protect water sources such as wells from contamination by detergents and waste water.
Natural resource management: World Vision emphasizes the value of caring for natural resources. Farmer are taught to protect their greatest asset — their land — by preventing soil degradation, increasing sustainability, and enhancing productivity.
