Nutrition and Food Security

Water is important not only for drinking and health, but for food and nutrition as well. At Water for Development, after we install a well, we help communities to set up irrigation for agriculture. As small community gardens grow, community members are not only provided with a source of food, but are able to take their harvest to the market and sell their goods, thus ensuring a steady stream of income with which they can fulfill other nutritional needs. Water for Development also works with to provide food aid for malnourished children and pregnant women, please see our food aid program under our projects!
