water within reach
One in four children in Africa has limited or no access to safe water and sanitation facilities. Until this basic need is met, our efforts to help communities build economic infrastructures and education facilities is incomplete.
Clean water, sanitation and hygiene are critical to development and stability in impoverished communities. Access is a requirement for equality and dignity of life; it impacts every area of life – education, poverty eradication, malnutrition, infant mortality and economic growth.
ACBF has been an implementation partner on projects to drill boreholes for wells and provide safe latrines in rural villages. We deploy all tools at our disposal – advocacy, funding and technical assistance, to improve access to water supplies and sanitation facilities in the communities we serve.
