the vision
The vision
  • Our vision is a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation; a world where no one suffers or dies from a water or sanitation related disease
the challenge
The challenge
  • 884 million people do not have access to safe drinking water
  • 2.5 billion are without adequate sanitation facilities
  • Every day, nearly 6,000 people (mostly children) die from water-related illnesses
water for people
WATER FOR PEOPLE
  • WFP supports sustainable water and sanitation solutions in 11 Countries, from Asia and Africa to Central and South America
  • Founded in the early 1990s by the AWWA, WFP is the organization’s “charity of choice”. WFP – Canada was founded in 1995 and coordinates fundraising in Canada and the direction of Canadian funds
the goals
The goals
  • 100% sustainable coverage of water and sanitation in an entire Region
  • Communities never have to ask another external agency to fix or replace their system
  • Service is continuous, down time is limited to operations and maintenance and systems are replaced with local resources
  • Our model becomes sector policy, others follow our model at a grander scale
  • Water For People closes country programs because model is adopted, applied or considered irrelevant
the difference
The Difference
  • Water For People doesn’t walk into a community, drill a well and then leave:
  • Solutions are developed with the local community
  • Construction is done by the community with the support of WFP in-country staff
  • Locals are trained to maintain the system
  • WFP volunteers perform on-going monitoring of the systems, suggesting improvement and reporting on sustainability
the impact 2009
The IMPACT - 2009
  • Total number of beneficiaries:
    • Water: 209,336
    • Sanitation: 118,055
  • WFP-Canada donated $221,140
  • Total of $9,942,299 raised
  • An additional $2,123,065 was leveraged from local governments, communities and other partners and donated to specific projects directly, not WFP
owwa wfpc committee
OWWA – wfpC committee

The OWWA has a Water For People Committee who’s mandate is focused on fundraising and awareness

Committee reps are OWWA members from around the province

In 2010 we’ve raised (so far) over $25,000

100% of the funds raised by the committee go directly to WFPC

Watch for the 2011 Events including:

Annual Ski Day (Jan/Feb)

London area curling funspiel (March)

Equipment Association’s annual golf tourney (May)

Silent Auction at the Annual Conf. (May)

KW Area Slo-pitch tourney (Oct)

Give Generously: WFPC supports individual donors, workplace giving, donations through OWWA events

Join the OWWA-WFP Committee: We’re always looking for energized people who want to have fun – for a good cause. We’re hoping to expand the number of events in 2011 and are looking for event organizers

World Water Corps: The in-country arm of WFP, WWC volunteers conduct baseline assessments, monitor implementation and report on sustainability.
