Rural communities in Guinea remain poorly served with too few sources of safe water in areas that are too widely spaced apart. In 2015, 32% of the population consumed contaminated water. With WASH services still recovering from the largest Ebola outbreak in human history, children in Guinea remain vulnerable to preventable illnesses and diseases. When children have access to safe water, they have so much more...including health, an education and a brighter future!
Join NextGen New York for drinks and light bites followed by a presentation providing in depth look at why the Water for Guinea program is so effective and how the community members lives will change as a result. We'll close the night out with Q+A and a conversation around what we all can do to make an impact!
