BENEFITING: Drop in the Bucket
Drop in the Bucket is a Los Angeles based non-profit that builds water wells and sanitation systems at rural schools in sub-Saharan Africa. Since forming in 2006 we have completed close to 100 water and sanitation projects at large rural schools in sub-Saharan Africa. One of the things we do is to try and bring new ideas to the field of water and sanitation by regularly assessing what is going on on the ground and trying to figure out solutions that other groups are not working on.
There are some amazing and effective hygiene and sanitation programs in place that are geared towards adults, but we have never really seen one that is fun and effective for children, so we are developing CLEAN (Cleanliness Learned Early is Always Effective). Educating children about hygiene and sanitation through songs, games, demonstrations and other fun methods so that the lessons learned stay with them for life.
We are seeking funding to hire more trainers and need to raise $2000 to keep the program going for the reast of 2011 and into 2012.
