Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
Drop in the Bucket is appreciative of the support of No More Poverty (nmp.org), and its co-founders the Omidi brothers, Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi. The water and sanitation charity will now be able to serve more of the estimated 800 million people around the globe who lack access to clean, safe water.
“In addition to addressing the most basic of life needs – clean water – our teams in Uganda and South Sudan go on to foster improvements in child health and education systems,” says John Travis on behalf of Drop in the Bucket. “Thank you No More Poverty for helping us to continue our work in East Africa. We appreciate people like the Omidis whose support empowers our team and its life-saving work.”

About Drop in the Bucket:
Since 2006, Drop in the Bucket has been working with villages in East Africa to drill wells and construct sanitation facilities. They employ local training teams to engage communities and address complex issues associated with local water systems and introduce community sanitation and hygiene initiatives. And, believing education is one of the most effective ways of moving a country out of poverty, Drop in the Bucket introduces social programs such as Village Savings and Loan Associations, Girl’s Clubs, and Health Clubs to poor communities.
