Innovative Education

Our work transforms the health of children. As such, engagement and innovative education approaches are essential to captivate school age children and help them to learn and develop new WASH (WAter, Sanitation, and Handwashing) behaviors.

What We Do

We provide safe water solutions for children in the most vulnerable areas of the world. We focus on the hard-to-reach rural areas in developing countries since these are often the most neglected populations.

How do we eradicate water-borne diseases from hard-to-reach communities?

Local Partners

We have developed strategic partnership with local organizations in the areas we serve to help implement our projects. They help develop the project around the specific needs of each specific community. Our project leaders also facilitate a coordinated approach with any other WASH-related initiatives in place by the government health agencies. Most of our projects are women-led and require up to 100 volunteers to be successful.

Technology

Our patented Pure Shores CPS technology was developed to specifically end the water crisis in hard-to-reach areas. Each device can provide safe water for up to 2,000 people per day. It uniquely solves all three problems needed to eradicate water borne disease - water purification, surface sterilization, and handwashing with soap. And, it’s so easy, a child can operate it - which they usually do in our school-based projects.

Innovative Education

The long term impact of any water project relies upon our recipient’s adoption of the new behaviors needed. Our projects focus on children, so our education needs to be innovative and fun. We’ve made considerable investments to engage our school age children in dynamic WASH education.

Deliberate Sustainability

Sustainability is the most overused and under delivered word in the not-for-profit world. We believe every Untapped project must be set up to last long after our funding is exhausted.

Edutainment

While living in Uganda our founders quickly learned that in order to create positive behavior change in school age children the education must be fun and participative. In collaboration with one of our longtime partners we developed what we now call Edutainment (aka infotainment or participatory theatre). Songs about WASH were written. A children’s traveling theatre was created. And the rest is history. Our children traveling performance team now go school-to-school to educate their peers about the dangers of drinking unsafe water and how water purification + handwashing can keep them safe.
