Mission Statement

Drop in the Bucket’s mission is to assist community development in sub-Saharan Africa by building wells and sanitation systems at schools; thus enabling children, especially girls to get an education and realize their full potential.

Description

Everyday 10 000 children under the age of 5 die from water related illnesses and 80% of the diseases in developing countries are related to poor drinking water and sanitation.

Drop in the Bucket installs water wells and sanitation systems at large rural schools in sub-Saharan Africa. We are a registered 501(c)(3) not for profit that has installed over 160 wells in 7 countries.

Our premise is that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and in order for kids to get an education, their day-to day survival tasks need to be simplified especially when it comes to the access of resources whether these are material, natural or informational.

A cornerstone of our approach is low overhead and minimal operating costs. We are dedicated to guaranteeing our donors that as much of their hard-earned money goes into the program as possible.
