Charity:Water Completion Report #3

philip May 2, 2015

Our third Charity:Water completion report arrived! Thanks to your support, we were able to fund a school water and sanitation project serving 198 people at the Adishimhafti School in Ethiopia, Africa.

Adishimhafti Project

This project provided a waterpoint and latrine block to the Adishimhafti School. Above is a map showing the GPS coordinates of the project pictured (14.39858, 38.85521).

You can find our previous two completion reports below, or check them out on our interactive map:

More than 50 million Ethiopians don't have access to safe water. Most rural families survive on less than five liters of water per day and walk up to four hours to collect it from open sources. 62% of Ethiopians lack clean water, and 88% lack sanitation. Projects like these make a real difference in people's lives, and I'm so happy to be able to be a part of it with you.

PCPartPicker is supported through affiliate commissions from participating retailers. We donate a portion of our earnings to charity. When you purchase components through retailer links on PCPartPicker, you're not only supporting this site - you're also helping provide clean water and sanitation to people in need. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being a part of this and helping us make this happen.
