Since 2013, RARE has partnered with WaterAid, to fund sustainable infrastructure projects that bring safe water, sanitation and hygiene education to villages in Timor-Leste (East Timor).
At RARE, we believe that access to safe water is a basic human right and that infrastructure is a means to support poverty reduction and improve lives. This is why RARE has committed to a long-term partnership with WaterAid, to fund sustainable infrastructure projects to villages in Timor-Leste.
Timor-Leste is one of the world's least developed countries. Seventy per cent of the population live in rural areas and half do not have access to safe water.
Since 2013, RARE has funded infrastructure projects that deliver safe water, sanitation and hygiene education to these communities. These infrastructure initiatives have impacted almost every aspect of life for the people in these villages, improving health, increasing school attendance, empowering women and girls and providing income through produce gardens.
Knowing that RARE are making such a meaningful difference in improving people's lives, creates strong client and staff engagement for our organisation.
