Institution de Loiseau

nazon_girlThe elementary school Institution de Louiseau depends on untreated rainwater to provide water for children to drink. However, through a HWP-PWW partnership, the school can now filter this water in biosand filters before giving it to children.

“Water deeply affects the lives of children,” Vierlande Alexandre, coordinator of the partnership, explained, “We found that a lot of children in schools were getting ill from unclean water. Many times these children were suffering from the same diseases over and over.” Clean water resources like the biosand filters and additional hygiene education are helping  children across Haiti have more healthy days.
