For over 20 years IRWA has been helping communities in developing countries, primarily in Central America, to build capacity, manage water and sanitation systems, and deliver safe, clean water.
We train in-country technical assistance staff in all facets of water treatment. We also build local capacity to manage water and sanitation systems, and maintenance. We draw from the experience of several hundred circuit riders from our sister organization, the National Rural Water Association, and on water and wastewater systems in all 50 states in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. We tailor our water quality improvement programs to the capabilities and available technology in the developing country rather than trying to force outside technologies onto the community.
To improve the quality of water for residents of developing nations through the establishment of partnerships with organizations to provide resources for implementation of training, technical assistance and sustainable technology applicable to the needs of developing nations.
