How does the program operate?
We select partners based on the poor quality of water, how many people are impacted and how well the beneficiary supports our mission to maintain the sustainable and safe drinking water source. We assess the quality of their local water sources, as well as water hardware and indicators of sustainability. We work with water experts to know which proposed solutions are most effective to ensure the program utilizes best practices in the field.
Local governments and beneficial hospitals or schools play major roles by educating the public about the importance of drinking safe water and maintaining the systems. Our partners in the community, Health Department, Department of Education and Training and regional leaders work together to choose water project implementation. This strengthens local ownership and helps build local capacity to maintain clean water projects for years to come.
VCF follows up, measures tests, and evaluates the beneficiary hospital and school systems every 6 months, changing the water filter when necessary.
