Hope Spring Water Charity Nigeria
Our approach to water poverty alleviation, places emphasis on reducing the hundreds of hours women and children spend fetching water. We strongly believe that the more time women spend in other productive tasks and the more time children spend in school, the higher their chances of breaking the poverty cycle in their respective homes and society at large.
Through advocacy, empowerment workshops and provision of water facilities, Hope Spring Water have directly imparted over 80,000 people in Nigeria, since inception of operations in 2015.
In 2018, Hope Spring Water executed 15 WASH projects in 15 Communities, directly imparting over 20,000 lives by providing water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in these communities.
To enhance project sustainability, long after we have gone, we carry beneficiary communities along from the planning to execution and monitoring phase of the projects. Our inclusive approach to project execution ensures the community take ownership of projects and ensure its continuity and functionality, long after we have gone.
