Let's Go.

What we're all about

Clean Water for Haiti is a faith based, volunteer run, non-profit mission. We exist to provide the people of Haiti with affordable access to clean water in their homes through the use of Biosand water filters.

 

Why Biosand water filters? Haiti has a water problem. Most water sources are contaminated. Most people can't afford expensive filtration systems, and can't afford to buy treated water. They have no choice but to use the contaminated water. Biosand filters work. Simple. Inexpensive. Effective.

 

Power to the People

People need the freedom to choose what is best for their family. Through our subsidized filter program Haitian families have that power to choose. A family can actively participate in improving their standard of health, saving money, and improving their quality of life.


Through our sanitation and hygiene education we are teaching people how to take simple, pro-active steps in their everyday lives that will help stop the spread of sickness and disease. Education gives people power.


We also believe in employing local people and using local materials whenever possible, feeding into the local economy and helping people learn skills valuable in many aspects of life.

 

Improve&Sustain

Giving people some control over their quality of life in a country where people often feel powerless is a gift without a price tag. Choices, participation, education – these are all key components to lasting change and development.

 

Because filter recipients pay a small fee for their filter there is an invested value. This helps us ensure that the families who receive filters truly want them and will use them. It also helps us to be good stewards of the donations we receive rather than investing resources on those that do not want to adopt the technology.


All funds received from filter recipients go right back into our filter program, helping us to make more filters and to help more families have access to clean water in their home.

Join the Cause

Make a Difference

At Clean Water for Haiti we are reliant on our in-country staff of local Haitians to do most of the day to day work of the mission. As we plan for the future we look at what our volunteer needs are and seek people that are able to commit to those needs.

 

Currently we are not in need of short term volunteers, but rather people that can commit to working with us for a year or more. Because the work we do is technical there is time needed to learning the whole process in order to be most effective, as well as learning Creole and how to work within the culture. Also, as we look at expanding the mission and our reach with Biosand filters we know that one of the greatest areas of need that we have is for volunteers that can come long term and work in positions of leadership.
