Lifewater requests $10,000 in unrestricted funds. Lifewater’s approach to transformational community development leverages hygiene education and infrastructure development to simultaneously decrease water borne disease and improve access to education for girls in the region. Their multi-tiered approach begins with public health education, which leads to latrine pit construction and culminates with clean water system development. Lifewater’s approach is closely aligned with the West Foundation’s interests in community-led development, education for girls and environmental health. Most recently, West Foundation monies supported the construction of a 6-door latrine at Omito Primary School in 2015 and general operating expenses in 2016.
