Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Access to clean drinking water continues to be the world's biggest health problem, even more so in the face of and aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to find ways to allow people access to clean water and raise the awareness of the problem. Without awareness, change will not happen.

First Half 2021: Provide Access to Clean Water in Central America

We're working to raise funds to contribute to our partner organization who works with communities in Central America to purify water. In Central America 85% of the people drink contaminated water. Our efforts can change that, one community at a time.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We will raise funds to be used to give access to clean drinking water to people in need. We will do this by accepting donations and being at events where we will make our handmade wooden items available for donation. We will also work to have a way to show our items for donation at one or more retail stores, so that there is the potential to raise money in addition to at our special events. We will work to exceed our fundraising total from 2021, $5,000 to increase funds, and be present in more locations, to raise awareness.

We will partner with organizations that will not only provide access to clean water to people in need, but ways to sustain systems so they continue to work, and are maintained by the local people in the communities who may be paid for their work and expertise. We will partner with organizations that demonstrate regard for the communities they serve and meet them on equal footing.

We have researched partners and will continue partnering with EOS International at least in the first half of the year. Our research and relationship with the CEO and director of development gives us confidence that they will continue their work using the model that makes it so communities gain more than clean water when they are involved; they gain, income and independence.

As we work with schools and students, we will model respect for others, confidence in their basic goodness as they offer their support to Wood for Water. We will always welcome questions and inquiries about what we are doing and who are our partners.

While we are small, we have increased our funds raised each year, even while the pandemic impacted our ability to meet with people. We have ideas on how to increase our funds raised in 2022 and are excited to make that happen. We have fantastic volunteers who have helped out at all events.
