With Justice Water, we are able to equip and empower nationals on the island of Hispaniola, as well as other long term workers there. We focus on empowering, educating and working alongside the people on this island for long term success. Using materials that can be found in the area, and leaning into the local knowledge, we have helped make a small dent in the water crisis on the island of Hispaniola and all over the world.
Since its inception in 2011, Justice Water has been able to train over 600 people: women, men and children in the areas of sanitation, hygiene and water safety.
We have also been able to partner with these local friends and provide clean water and/or sanitation for almost 4,000 people on the island.
Moreover, we have been able to work with and learn alongside some amazing people!
