Bring back life to village Boraie - India Fund
Help bring back life to people at Boraie village, Rajasthan, India by supporting this project. Water scarcity has taken a huge toll on villages. In absence of water people face hardships. Many women walk miles daily to fetch water for daily use. Many farmers struggle with farming. Families are forced to pick up alternative livelihoods in nearby cities. Villages are abandoned. Boraie is such a village. Project Oasis is focused on developing self-sustained water resources for water desperate villages in India. By identifying strategic locations with scientific research and local expertise, check dams are built for the villages to ensure year-round availability of water sourced by rainwater harvesting techniques. Reviving Boraie is part of Project Oasis. Boraie is evaluated as a high impact site, where by building a checked dam farmers can have access to water supply throughout the year. A checked dam harvests/preserves rainwater during monsoon, then let it flow away. This collected water goes underground replenishing all wells in the area. In good monsoon the dam will hold 4,03,571 cft = 1,13,00,000 crore litres of water. Each village is unique. At Boraie the planned checked dam is named Aatamni Khalli . This campaign targets funding of $6000 for the purpose of this dam. With checked dam built, following impact is expected at Boraie: --145 families, totaling 1160 people will get access to water throughout the year. --320 migrant/displaced workers will reverse migrate to the village to pick up farming again. --529 Acres of new irrigable land will be generated. --290 new employment opportunities will be generated.

Help us Provide Safe Drinking Water for Poor Communities in Sierra Leone Fund
THE CHALLENGE: Sierra Leone is currently off track on meeting the target of halving the percentage of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation. Only 57% of the country's population have access to safe drinking water. 30% of all schools are without running water and 14% of all under 5 child deaths are due to diarrhea and other water related illnesses. Women and girls are particularly affected spending time and energy on water collection on daily basis. OUR SOLUTION AID, through its EMAS Technology adopted a low-cost self water supply concept, providing technical WASH facility implementation as well as training for local WASH technicians. The promoted low-cost Water Self-Supply technologies in Sierra Leone include a wide range of low-cost options such as hand drilled wells, rain water harvesting systems, household water. The presented water self-supply approach follows a do-it-yourself and an added value principal. LONG-TERM IMPACT: AID, through the use of Emmas Technology has been able to construct over 800 wells in various communities in rural areas in Sierra Leone. With the great impacts our intervention is making in addressing the growing water concerns of poor people, we are committed to reaching more communities as clearly articulated in our 2020 vision to reach up to 2,000 communities. AID is also very determined to also implement the Emmas Technological approach to other parts of Africa.

PROYECTO GUAJIRA 2020 School and Nursery Santa Cruz, La Guajira. Colombia. Goal: $4,250 WaterAid is determined to make clean water, reliable toilets and good hygiene available for boys and girls. Our Healthy Beginnings Campaign seeks to improve health and nutrition for over 750 boys and girls with the availability of clean safe water and proper hygiene. We need all the support from the Cisco team to help us reach our goal! With your help we will be supporting the school Santa Cruz, which serves over 42 Children, located in the La Guajira (Colombia’s most northerly region: a vast and wild desert on the Caribbean coast bordering Venezuela). Today there is no water directly being supplied to the school. The students and teachers have to carry water in buckets from a central location and they relieve themselves in the areas surrounding the community. This tough situation creates a health hazard while being a huge burden as well. The total cost of this project is $8,500 USD. The challenge for this campaign is to raise $4,250 USD between December 2019 and February 2020, while taking advantage of the Cisco match to achieve the ultimate goal of $8,500 USD. WaterAid will be supporting this project all along and this venture will conclude with an actual visit to the project in La Guajira, where we will engage with the community who is benefiting from this campaign. The kids in Santa Cruz and WaterAid thank you in advanced for your support!

Did you know that 844 million people across the globe don't have access to clean water? In May 2020 I’ll be traveling to Colombia with WaterAid, an international organization dedicated to bringing clean water, toilets and hygiene assistance to the poorest and most marginalized communities across the globe. After several days trekking to the ancient, Lost City of Tayrona, I’ll be visiting and volunteering with WaterAid in indigenous, Wayuu communities in La Guajira, Colombia. For the past 3 years I've served as a board member of Wateraid. I've seen first-hand how my time and money have directly made a life-giving difference in the health, social enablement, and upward enablement of so many people. Please consider making a donation to my page today. Gifts made will directly support the communities in Colombia I’ll be working with on my trip. The Indigenous Wayúu live in dispersed rural and marginalized communities with very limited access to services, where only 16% has access to water and a mere 4% to basic sanitation. Currently, it is estimated that 60% of the Wayúu population suffer from malnutrition and roughly one indigenous child under 5 has died of causes linked to malnutrition every week over the past 2 years. WaterAid is working to change this, and with your help, I’ll be making a real difference in the lives of many on my trip with WaterAid.
