ICYE in the World
|Name:||Water for People|
|Brief description and main aims|
Water for People has been working in the rural communities of Bolivia since 1992.
The goals of Water for People's country programs include training local people on how to build, manage and maintain their own water and sanitation systems and to build capacity to ensure that the systems can be operated and maintained at appropriate levels for each community.
Volunteers provide professional support to Water for People's work overseas within the parameters of its successful community-based model. As such, they are not involved with the actual design and construction of water and sanitation systems. These functions are left to local government and nongovernmental organization partners, as well as community members themselves, who must take ownership of these systems and understand how to operate and maintain them for the long term.
|Volunteer requirements / Skills|
Water for People is seeking skilled volunteers to assist with a variety of programs that contribute to the shared vision of a world where all people have access to safe water and adequate sanitation.
