Improving access to water in Africa
Grace used to get water for her family from a nearby stream, now there is water at her house. She took a WaterCredit loan for a rain catchment system, which she has now paid off. She uses the water for domestic chores like cleaning, laundry, and even watering a household vegetable garden.
Water.org has established lending programs in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia to provide more people of Africa, like Grace, the opportunity to access improved water and sanitation facilities. This recent article provides more insight on Water.org's efforts.
