Access to Potable Water

Potable Water for All!

Also, many people in Africa lack access to clean drinking water. The water people drink and use is contaminated with open defecation, seepage from pit latrines, pesticides and many environmental pollutants. According to World Health Organization (WHO) (2012)," 2.0 billion people lack improved sanitation, projected to be 2.4 billion 2015; 1.1 billion people (15% of the global population practice open defecation; and 949 million open defecates live in rural areas." As a result of this behavior, the wells are contaminated by the feces which make its way to the water sources by the rain runoffs. Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for more than 40% of global population without access to improved drinking water.Promoting a Healthier Africa ,Inc was formed to reduce some of these adverse conditions.
