Poverty and Water Poverty in Africa is often caused by a lack of access to clean, safe water and proper sanitation. There are a number of reasons why poverty has become an epidemic in Africa. Poverty can be the result of political instability, ethnic conflicts, climate change and other man-made causes. But one of the greatest causes of poverty in Africa is also the most overlooked...the lack of access to clean drinking water. Nearly one billion people do not have access to clean, safe water - that's the equivalent of 1 in 8 people on the planet! For these people, poverty is a fact of life.
I am student at Bellevue College WA, volunteer to help my people in Democratic republic of Congo. After political crisis in Dem rep of Congo, I came up with water projects. To bring sustainable sanitation solutions to community who doesn't have access to safe affordable sanitation. Four thousand children die every day from diseases caused by bad water and sanitation. Some 1.8 million people, mostly children, are killed by diarrhea alone each year.
With my passion of help people, I used my pocket money to build clean water in Kananga and Kivu (Dem rep of Congo), I save life of thousand children who died everyday caused by diseases with my goal of to bring clean water in the village. Your support makes that possible!
