WATER, SANITATION & HYGIENE
OUR SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP MODEL
At NHWC, we work as social entrepreneurs
to drive change and realize financial independence.
Water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) are arguably some of the most vital resources needed to provide long-term health and well-being.
Clean, accessible water for all is a vital part of the world we want to live in. However, massive inequalities exist between those with access to clean water and basic toilets, and those without. Persisting challenges with access, affordability, and technology advancement in WASH remain barriers to achieving equitable access to education, health, and economic prosperity for millions of people worldwide.
For women, water is personal. They are responsible for finding resources to survive - for drinking, cooking, hygiene, and sanitation. Today, women around the world will spend a collective 200 million hours collecting water. Standing in line, walking long distances, and paying exorbitant amounts for water means that women are, more often than not, forced to make impossible choices to provide for their families.
We work with partners and individual contributors to maximize the potential improvement of communities and simultaneously create a social enterprise business that generates jobs, contributes to research and development, and ensures the sustainability of current and future community models.
What would happen if every household in a village had access to clean, safe water?
We want to find out so we're providing water filters to every single family in the village of Kapkures. That equates to 3,500 families or roughly 18,000 people.
