The Clean Water Project

The Clean Water Project is about global access to clean, safe drinking water. We are also helping develop irrigation projects in areas where getting water to the crops is an issue.

About The Clean Water Project

Through education, training and implementation of water technologies, The Clean Water Project is changing paradigms and equipping communities with knowledge and resources to be good stewards of existing water supplies (protection from biological and industrial contaminants). Where water is scarce, efforts are made to procure adequate, sustainable water sources through conventional and innovative techniques depending on the area, climate and typography.

Without water, development work is not sustainable, communities cannot flourish and families cannot emerge from poverty. Water is key and IAP believes we have an opportunity to make small waves that can have substantial impact on our project communities. Access to clean and safe water is essential to life and the continued success of our development initiatives.

Recent Water Project

Urban environments in developing nations typically have public water systems, but often these water supplies are contaminated with bacteria and other harmful pathogens. This is the case in Antigua, Guatemala where IAP partners with Escuela Instagrada, a school for impoverished Maya families. The Ripple Project funded the installation of two commercial grade water purification systems providing clean and safe water to hundreds of students and their families. A residential system was also provided to supply key personnel with safe drinking water for use in their home.

We cannot overstate the importance of access to clean and safe water as it relates to International Assistance Program’s development initiatives. We cannot do what we do without the generosity of people like you and we cannot do what we do without clean water. Your contribution to The Ripple Project will be used specifically to increase access to clean and safe water sources, providing a more healthy life, if not life itself, to those who desperately need a cool drink of water.
