PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.
IAM works with local experts and communities to tailor a plan that will provide access to clean water while addressing the unique needs of each specific project cite. Taking into consideration factors like water coverage, geographical challenges, grading issues, wildlife and vegetation, seasonal changes, and local customs allows IAM to serve communities with the best possible solution to their needs.
Prior to beginning work on water projects (or any project), IAM is aware of the fact that there is no one size fits all approach to the needs of rural communities. For that reason, IAM specifically seeks to build relationships with local churches and families in the area to gain an understanding of the greatest economic and health needs within the surrounding area.
Engage Local Churches
IAM partners and works alongside local churches in order to mobilize believers to help their neighbors learn healthy habits and to learn how best to serve the needs of the community. Throughout each and every project, IAM strives to bring hope and change the lives of people who are most in need by empowering them with long-lasting and sustainable solutions that will become a catalyst for spreading the word of God and kindness.
Clean Water Projects
Sanitation & Hygene
The water needs of every community can be vastly different, which requires that IAM work with experts to develop custom safe water solutions based on surveys, population, and locally-available materials. Based on the foregoing factors, IAM then works closely with local experts to oversee the applicable clean water solution installation and ensures that the needs of the people are met.
With every water point IAM funds, our partners coordinate sanitation and hygiene training to identify how current water management practices may expose the community to contaminated water or water-borne diseases. This important step empowers communities by informing them about their health and clearly outlines steps to protect the community from potential water contaminants.
