Ethiopia Water Projects

In Ethiopia, a third of the country is drinking contaminated water. Children are falling sick, and it’s entirely preventable.

  • It’s estimated that 7.5 percent of the global water crisis is in Ethiopia alone.
  • Nearly 1 in 4 people do not have a toilet, so they go outside in the open. This is a major public health crisis.
  • The good news: Diarrheal disease, the second leading cause of death for children under five years old, is nearly eliminated by drinking safe water and practicing proper sanitation and hygiene.

Our Work in Ethiopia

Lifewater constructs custom water access and sanitation solutions in the globe’s hardest to reach communities. This includes places like Bensa, Nensebo, Kokosa, and Dodola—regions in the remote corners of Ethiopia. 

First, local staff who know the cultures and language help communities adopt life-saving sanitation and hygiene practices. They love like Jesus by bringing health to their neighbors. Then, communities receive a safe water source built to last for generations, and donors receive an update with a photo of their impact.

(Note: data below from June 2015–August 2020)

“My wife and I were fortunate to find Lifewater. I could write for hours about them, the service and impact they provide. We love supporting them and look forward to many years of partnership!”

– Chris and Sarah McCabe, Lifewater Donors
