School administrators and teachers often don’t have sufficient financial resources to provide safe water and adequate sanitation facilities for students, so some schools become havens for infectious disease. Further, adolescent girls will often quit attending schools where latrines are unsanitary or not divided by gender. Global Volunteers works with community partners acquire private and corporate funding for construction of clean water and sanitation facilities for schools.
Use your skills in fundraising to help us identify and approach potential donors for school projects. Apply your background in architecture, sanitation, water systems, wells, and construction to help improve school water sources and latrines. Provide technical expertise for sanitation facilities and waste disposal systems, wells and water systems, and help locate facilities for maximum safety.
