Learn about Peace Corps Senegal's Water and Sanitation Initiative
Water quality can be a serious issue for many communities in Senegal, and Volunteers work with a variety of funding sources to complete a variety of projects.
From the Appropriate Projects website:
As an initiative of Water Charity, we do small but critical water and sanitation projects. Each one is a solution to a problem, costs no more than $555, and uses appropriate technology. We start them at once and complete them very quickly.
We work with Peace Corps Volunteers serving throughout the world, who assist people and organizations in or near the communities where they live or work to identify, implement, manage, and evaluate the projects.
Each project has a high impact, resulting in clean water and effective sanitation for individuals, families, and communities. We are flexible, and can react to emergencies.
As of the time of this writing, Peace Corps Senegal has done more than 100 projects with Appropriate Projects, each one bringing water or sanitation to a community. You can see them all here.
