Without toilets or latrines, human waste creates rampant diseases in our communities. Eliminating defecation in riverbanks improves water conditions and community health.

Why It Matters

Because children under five do not yet have fully-developed immune systems, they are especially at risk for diseases.

In rural, impoverished areas, access to health clinics and medicines is scarce. More than 1.3 billion people lack access to essential medicines. Studies show that, each year, more than 1 million people die from malaria, more than 1 million people die from HIV/AIDS, and thousands die from dengue fever.

Who It Affects

Outreach helps teach communities in Bolivia to build smokeless stoves, reducing 90-100 percent of smoke in homes.

These stoves statistically decrease the amount of respiratory and eye diseases by 60-70 percent. Currently, nearly half of our Bolivian communities are using smokeless stoves.
Since Outreach began working in Kalebuka, DR Congo, a new clinic has increased access to medicines four-fold. And the clinic doesn't just serve the community of Kalebuka; families come from all over to receive treatments or medical attention.

The clinic has the capacity to treat eight out of 10 common diseases in the communities, including typhoid fever and minor surgeries.
A medical project allowing communities in India to access medicines and health care has made a dramatic difference for the people living in Kuljing and Kurumpeta.

Before Outreach was established in India, less than one-third of the people in our communities had access to medicines. Now, with hard work and collaboration from each community, 69 percent more families now have access to medicines for dengue fever and other common diseases when they need it.
In Nicaragua, communities are building smokeless stoves, reducing 90-100 percent of smoke in homes. These stoves statistically decrease the amount of respiratory and eye diseases by 60-70 percent.

Now, Outreach has increased the use of smokeless stoves 15-fold in our communities.
Outreach has helped build health clinics in rural areas of the Philippines.

72 percent of Outreach communities now have access to medicines and health care when they need it.
Today, Outreach has helped communities in Zambia access nearly 1,000 preventative mosquito nets, stopping malaria before it has a chance to begin.
