Community Watering Station

Each day, nearly 900 million people live without access to clean water. For far too many women and children, that means hours spent carrying heavy jugs of water that’s not safe to drink. Community watering stations bring fresh water to central locations, improving overall health and freeing up time for women to provide for their families and children to attend school.

Community Latrine

Latrines and proper sanitation are vital to the health of every community. Good systems prevent disease, conserve resources and protect underground water reserves. CRS designs latrines that meet the needs of communities and teaches people how to use and maintain them. We also provide basic hygiene education that emphasizes the importance of hand-washing.

Hand-washing stations significantly reduce disease, and increase student attendance and academic achievement.

We also provide basic hygiene education.
