Clean Water and Sanitation
YOI volunteers can help build drinking water facilities for rural village schools, rural communities and tribal villages. This includes helping with building water tanks, drinking water wells, laying pipelines and building drinking water storage units for families. During the monsoon season, rain water harvesting can provide clean drinking water. Water purification devices can also be installed to help prevent the spread of water borne diseases and provide clean and hygienic drinking water for the children and families. Volunteers are needed throughout the year to plan, design and implement these initiatives. These are really worthwhile projects and really make a direct positive difference to the lives of the people we are trying to help. Ongoing projects and resources have been re-purposed to support COVID prevention measures. Much needed clean drinking water and sanitation projects will start as soon as COVID impact is reduced and current travel restrictions are lifted.
