Rebuild & Renew Project
Since 2009, Pure Water for the World, (PWW) has been working in very rural, underserved regions of Honduras implementing life-changing safe water and sanitation programs and providing essential hygiene education. The Clarke Cares Foundation (CCF) has been a proud supporter of PWW since 2018. Below are a few of the projects CCF has helped to fund.
CEB Francisco Morazán School Project
The 490 students and 11 teachers at the CEB Francisco Morazán School, in Danli, Honduras have inadequate and unsafe bathroom facilities and no reliable access to clean, safe water. The lack of access to these most essential WASH tools and resources impacts students’ health and ability to learn, limiting school attendance, academic outcomes, and future opportunities.
Funds donated by the Clarke Cares Foundation and other generous donors will provide:
I latrines. Families will also attend several educational hygiene workshops to learn about important environmental protection (including water source protection), home hygiene, personal hygiene, and safe sanitation practices.
Your generous donation will support the health and well-being of the families of Trojes & Planes de Abajo…helping to rebuild and renew hope for a brighter future.
Trojes Home Project
In November of 2020, in the span of just two weeks, Hurricanes Eta and Iota, ravaged through the Trojes region, causing widespread and significant destruction. The storms caused substantial damage, tearing down hillsides, washing out roads, demolishing family homes and farmland and destroying established water and sanitation systems.
Funds from the CCF were used to install biosand water filters in all 58 homes in the village of El Onal. In addition, PWW constructed and supervised the building of home latrines in 40 of the homes. Families also attended several educational hygiene workshops to learn about important environmental protection (including water source protection), home hygiene, personal hygiene, and safe sanitation practices.
In total, funds from Clarke Cares provided reliable, sustainable access to safe water to all 192 men, women and children and empower the community of El Onal with the essential WASH tools and knowledge to protect themselves and their environment from waterborne diseases.
Trojes School Project
Good health and wellbeing are as essential to an education as textbooks and directly linked to a child’s success in school. Children who have reliable access to clean drinking water and safe sanitation at school and at home are protected from devastating waterborne diseases. They are able to attend school regularly and receive an education, opening doors to their future.
San Marquitos de Yamales is located in the very mountainous and remote region of Trojes, Honduras. The vast majority of homes and schools in the Trojes region have no access to a central water system or basic sanitation facilities. Open defecation, in combination with agricultural run-off, significantly contributes to contamination of the primary water resources. Diarrheal disease is endemic and a frequent cause of childhood death.
The community of San Marquitos de Yamales has 136 people living in 30 homes. Thirty children, with one teacher, attend the local community school.
Funding from Clarke Cares Foundation helped to provide the school with much needed tools and education, including:
