World Water Watch supports water supply projects in several countries. Typically these projects are technical assistance efforts to develop, build and maintain community potable water supply systems. Current projects include systems in South America and Africa. Partner NGO’s, foundations and governmental units are often involved in this work. The cost of small-scale community systems ranges from $500- $8,000 for materials and equipment. Individual and sponsor donations (contribute to WWW) are an important element of this WWW initiative.
Assisting in the development and maintenance of community water supply systems offers several opportunities for volunteers (volunteer opportunities) and contributors to participate directly in community projects and outreach. Planning, construction, and operation of small community water supply systems, as well as related health and sanitation programs, are excellent and very rewarding ways for WWW supporters to contribute their time and skills to vital community needs.
