About Drop in the Bucket

Since its inception, DROP has constructed more than 350 water sanitation systems, which include toilets, wells and even sometimes showers, in schools across sub-Saharan Africa. DROP’s approach allows it to address the three major effects of the water crisis all at once. Before DROP even begins construction, its workers educate the community about the benefits of sanitation, including hand-washing and safe food preparation. Because DROP believes in partnerships instead of handouts, it asks the villages to raise part of the money for the project. Every man, woman and child in each community we work feels an ownership over our projects, and that’s crucial for long-term sustainability.
With the sanitation system in place, DROP helps the community establish a micro-lending program that helps cover the costs of keeping the well function and helps foster small businesses. And because the systems are located at schools, girls—who are almost always tasked with fetching water for their families—are no longer forced to drop out of school. Instead, they receive the education they desire and deserve.
DROP’s approach is different. We don’t just believe in the life-changing power of water, so we don’t exist solely to drill wells. Instead, we believe in the world-changing power of water, so we empower communities and partner with them create the safer, wealthier and fairer world we all want.
