Join us for a day of health and hygiene training that provides practical ways to help improve the community health of the places you visit in third world countries. Our training course teaches about community mapping, waterborne diseases, other parasite and diseases, and healthy hygiene practices. We also teach about best practices to use around the new community water system that might be installed while the team is there. Once you are trained, Fountains of Hope welcomes you to join us on a trip to put your new skills into practice. A FoH Trip will change your life forever!
Fountains of Hope safe water systems impacts large communities of people. In other words, it is not a single-family solution. Therefore, schools, orphanages, and churches are great matches for our system. At Vine Christian Academy in Banda, Uganda, Typhoid was a major problem for the orphaned children. As orphans, they were given the HIV Aids virus from their parents. This made them even more susceptible to water-borne diseases. After three years of using the purifier, they have had no reports of Typhoid.
Fountains of Hope provides regular training sessions or individual training to people interested in installing their own water purifier systems (that can be obtained from FoH) or to understand systems that are installed by the FoH team. It is best that you join Bill or one of our trainers on a mission or service trip, so you understand everything that is needed to assess the site, install the purifier and train the water team in the indigenous countries we visit.
Contaminated water is the #1 cause of death in developing countries. It is responsible for life-threatening diseases such as cholera, typhoid, dysentery, hepatitis, and giardia. Fountains of Hope has the technology, volunteers, and heart to change this statistic. Through the generosity of donors and volunteers, children and entire communities can drink and use safe water and learn healthy hygiene practices. Share your talents, life experiences and passion in the areas of technology, media, marketing, part assemble and recruitment and development. Volunteer and we will quickly have you serving communities in the world!
