Clean Water and Sanitation

Burundi is the most densely populated countries in Africa with nearly half of the population lacking access to clean, safe drinking water and sanitation services. Lack of clean water is a crisis, particularly for local children and pregnant women. Poor access to clean water undermines their development. For girls, they often miss out on education and are at risk of sexual violence as they make long journeys to fetch clean water.

Impact Burundi provides clean water and sanitation services to rural communities in Burundi. This improves the overall community health, nutrition, and empowers children to focus on education.
