Haiti National Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (HANWASH)

Dr. Omar Keith Helferich,  who works with HANWASH on sustainability, gave a quick overview of the current conditions in Haiti. The political unrest in Haiti is causing challenges, but HANWASH is committed to the goal of bringing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to every person in Haiti. Dr. Helferich is helping to implement change theory in the program. One of the outcomes of utilizing this approach is that delivery will be performed as a pay-for-service. 

Hope College Global Water Research Institute (GWRI)

GWRI has recently joined HANWASH as a partner. Dr. Helferich introduced Dr. Aaron Best and Dr. Brent Krueger from GWRI to talk about the institute's projects.
