At Evidence Action we are actively managing the unprecedented set of risks and challenges posed by COVID-19 to the communities and people we serve. In such circumstances, provision of basic services becomes even more essential, to avert easily preventable disease and avoid further burdening fragile health systems.
When we launched Dispensers for Safe Water, we had a bold vision: deliver safe water access through a self-sufficient program. While we’re still a long way from a self-funded program, last year, the UNFCCC approved our largest consignment of carbon credits to date. Carbon funds provide an important leverage opportunity for the program’s donor funding - and contribute to our ability to provide safe water to over 4 million people.
