Notable Achievements
In 2023, our initiatives made significant strides in improving lives and fostering community development worldwide. Key highlights include:

  • Water Supply Projects: we continued our efforts to provide sustainable water supplies to rural communities in Nepal, Nicaragua, Zambia, and Tanzania. SMART technologies brought clean drinking water and water for farm use to families in remote areas, improving health and well-being.
  • Green Initiatives: In Colombia and Costa Rica, we expanded our models in urban agriculture and circular economy projects, contributing to environmental sustainability and community development.
  • Youth and Women Empowerment: Our programs in Bolivia focused on improving job opportunities for young people and women, fostering green and circular economies. In 2023, 81 young women entered the job market, with 56 securing permanent employment.
  • Global Reach and Collaboration: Through the Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN), we reached thousands of individuals and organizations worldwide. In 2023, RWSN contributed to eight global projects, ran seven webinars, and welcomed new members to its Executive Steering Committee.
  • Healthcare Restoration in Ukraine: Together with our partners, we rehabilitated six war-damaged health centers and rebuilt one, ensuring access to essential medical services for communities affected by the conflict.
  • Innovative Solutions: Our projects in Nepal introduced innovative water filtration technologies, benefitting schools and households. In Costa Rica, our support for the circular economy component led to significant reductions in CO2 emissions through organic waste management.
