HOW DOES CLEAN WORK?
CLEAN works with local communities to find solutions that are wanted, sustainable and effective. Community leadership committees are formed, sustainable technologies that can be built and implemented locally are identified, measures to protect water and the environment are implemented, and permanent tools for evaluation, assistance and feedback are put into place.
WHY WATER AND SANITATION?
Beyond health, water and sanitation have a huge impact on educational and economic opportunities worldwide. Women and girls spend an average of 6 hours a day fetching water and the lack of safe sanitation and sanitary products keeps girls out of school. Water and sanitation opens doors and provides opportunities that would otherwise not exist.
