DLDT is an incredible organization that has been providing education to local youth, access to clean sustainable water and sanitation in Uganda, encouraging environmental action and empowering people everywhere.
Erin Huber, the founder, is an inspiration. She is dedicated, motivated, and establishing real life-altering changes locally and abroad. I am honored to volunteer with this organization and couldn't be prouder of the work being done!

Every time I visit the DLDT website I am amazed at all of the wonderful work they are doing. Erin and her team are literally giving new life to children and families in Africa and I am so happy to be a part of it. I am also so grateful that DLDT educates and inspires our local communities to be more responsible with our own water resources, and I am reminded of this every time I go to local beach with my children. The world needs more organizations like Drink Local Drink Tap.

It has been a great privilege to serve as a board member of Drink Local Drink Tap (DLDT). I've worked with several non-profit organizations, but DLDT sets itself apart with the energy and enthusiasm its staff and volunteer community bring to their work every day. We all like to feel like we're doing something that is changing the world; DLDT is really doing it.

I have personally seen the compassion and dedication that this organization demonstrates while implementing water projects in rural Uganda where virtually no other NGO goes because it is so difficult to work there, and there is so little money available to fund projects. While 80% of wells built by other organizations are inoperable within 2 years, those installed by DLDT are 100% in operation due to training and monitoring for years after project completion. By targeting rural schools and villages, DLDT give children like this 6 year old clean water. He will have hours more to study and play when he no longer pushes this bike for miles each day to get filthy water for his family.

I've performed for DLDT events as a professional musician and have experienced their impact on the my community as a Cleveland resident living near Lake Erie. I couldn't be more thrilled to have people like Erin Huber and DLDT doing the amazing work they do both here in Cleveland and globally. Through their effective education, I've rethought my own consumption of bottled water, straws, and single-use plastic, and continue to be mindful of my own water consumption. Thank you, DLDT!

I have been involved with Drink Local. Drink Tap., Inc. since 2010. I have volunteered and been the secretary for the DLDT Board of Directors since 2013. DLDT is providing fresh water and sanitation to areas of Uganda that were underserved by larger international water organizations. In the Cleveland area DLDT educates hundreds of youth annually about water resources. And DLDT has been sponsoring beach cleanups on Lake Erie since 2010. It is great to see DLDT, an organization born on the shore of a Great Lake, providing fresh water to people in Uganda!

Granted I am biased because I have volunteered with DLDT since it's inception nearly 10 years ago. But the fact that I've stayed involved this long speaks volumes. DLDT is genuinely one of the most dedicated, active, results oriented non profit out there. They deliver on the mission of education, awareness and activism for safe and accessible water. I am beyond proud at how far they have come and how much they have been able to achieve. Encourage all to take a look at the website for more complete updates. And really encourage all to get involved with DLDT because water is life!

I personally know the director of DLDT, Erin Rosen, and know she is doing a fantastic work in getting water to the desperate regions in Africa. These children carry big containers of water, called jerry cans, that is already unclean, so that their families can sustain life. Erin has put her heart and soul into helping these kids get CLEAN water, and water they don't have to carry for miles a day. She continues to do this on a daily basis at home in Cleveland or while she is on the field in Uganda. Her enthusiasm makes others want to join in to help us not to take water for granted, and for us not to waste water. But the main thing, is to help fund more and more boreholes for the children to have clean, fresh water. Kudos to this fine organization!

I've volunteered with DLDT for about a year and a half, helping Erin with with mapping and record-keeping of her projects in Uganda. I'm quite impressed by the work that DLDT does, and am glad to have played a small part in advancing their goals!

I highly recommend supporting Drink Local Drink Tap. They are an organization that inspires individuals to recognize and solve our water issues through creative education, events, and providing safe water access to people in need. They specialize in deep boreholes and gravity-fed tap systems mainly at schools, of which water sources serve the community as well.

As a long time employee of a non profit that has collaborated with them on several water and sanitation projects in Uganda, I can attest to the dedication and impact of their work. Drink Local Drink Tap continues to be a valuable partner to us and we hope to continue including them in our program for many years to come!
