CHAMA’s 10 PRIORITY SECTORS
Sanitation, safe drinking-water and hygiene must all go hand in hand. According to World Health Organization (WHO), only 46% of rural Sub-Saharan Africa had access to improved drinking water by 2006. Our field statistics suggests that over 85% of tropical diseases such as malaria, diarrhea, dysentery, are caused by bad water intake. They are preventable and curable, but clean drinking water is frequently unavailable to the impoverished. Tropical diseases such as malaria are poverty diseases, and every child deserves the right to a clean and safe drinking water. CHAMA drill deep wells to rural African communities that meets international standard in order to prevent these poverty diseases.

This can motivate individual households to take action to meet their own water and sanitation needs. Between 2006 and 2012, CHAMA has provided water and sanitation trainings to over 6, 000 people. These people have in turn trained another 6,000 people and the cycle continues.

Safe water and basic sanitation are fundamentals necessary to empower the world’s poorest people and break the cycle of poverty. CHAMA believes that providing access to clean drinking water is just the beginning of the life saving mission. The next step place to start is to teach people the skills they need to have safe water in their homes. CHAMA transfers knowledge and skills to community based organizations, churches and individuals in developing countries through education, training and consulting services.
