THE STORY:

Clearwater Initiative wrote -

Join Team ClearWater in our efforts to raise $20,000 by October 24, 2010! A group of dedicated volunteers and runners will pound out the Army Ten-Miler race in Washington, DC to raise funds for ClearWater, enabling us to expand our footprint in Uganda.

ClearWater Initiative is dedicated to promoting simple, sustainable solutions for the provision of clean water to populations in need. ClearWater funds both established and innovative clean water solutions, such as borehole repairs, protected springs and well drilling, with an emphasis on community mobilization and training. ClearWater currently operates in northern Uganda.

We strive to achieve our mission through technical excellence, responsible use of donor funds, collaboration with local communities and compassion for the needs of individuals overwhelmed by circumstances beyond their control.

ClearWater Initiative was founded in 2007 by Benjamin Sklaver, an American soldier deployed to the Horn of Africa to work with refugees and internally displaced civilians returning to their homes after 20 years of civil war. Ben witnessed the lack of clean water in remote communities and was determined to help. He founded ClearWater to address this basic human need and in the process brought hope to villagers who praised his work. Ben was tragically killed in October 2009 while serving in Afghanistan, where he was creating sustainable infrastructure and bringing the same sense of hope that he had brought to Uganda.
