Ways To Get INvolved
Water Treatment & Health Education
This course combines instruction on water chlorination methods and health education to help people understand the relationship between water, sanitation and health. Students learn how to set up a water treatment system, methods of water treatment, and tools for teaching health education.
This course teaches how to repair the thousands of wells around the world that are not functioning for want of simple repairs. Students learn about common types of hand pumps, how to assemble and disassemble pump parts, and how to troubleshoot common problems.
Join a water project
By joining a water project, you can become a part of that mission in a hands-on way.
When you join a project you may work with locals to build a water treatment plant, teach health education, repair a broken well, or study ways to start a micro-business.
