ClearWater Initiative is thrilled to be an official charity partner for the 2013 ING NYC Half Marathon! Team ClearWater will raise funding for three wells, which will provide safe, dependable and nearby sources of clean water for over 1,500 people in Uganda.
ClearWater's mission is to provide simple, sustainable sources of clean water to communities in northern Uganda. Less than 60% of people in this region have access to clean water within two kilometers of their home. ClearWater Initiative addresses this need through the construction of wells and protected springs along with sanitation, hygeine and water source maintenance training.
ClearWater's projects reduce disease and time spent in search of clean water - often up to 6 hours per day - and provide villagers with the skills and training to lead healthier and more productive lives.
