Your Impact

Over the last few years, Team World Vision has raised over $950,000 to help improve the lives of thousands of people in the region of Menkao, Democratic Republic of Congo. Through our collective efforts, we’ve been able to provide vital assistance and support to communities in need, improving access to essential resources and fostering positive change.

Every $50 you raise through the Global 6K helps transform a person's life through clean, safe water. 

Your support directly translates into transformative actions on the ground, ensuring that individuals and families have access to this fundamental resource, improving health outcomes, and enhancing overall well-being. Join us in our mission to create lasting change and empower communities with the gift of clean water. 


Progress to Date

Our goal is to help make life better for girls and boys in Menkao by making sure families and communities have clean water, access to toilets and continue to build healthy habits.

· The water supply project provided two villages 14km away with access to clean water. 

· Water pipes have been laid to connect the central Menkao village to the water supply. 

· Two concrete storage tanks have been constructed, each equipped with four connection points. 

· Three taps have been installed along with a solar pumping system to enhance energy efficiency. 

· Since prioritizing household access to drinking water in 2017, our 2022 evaluation showed a 56% increase in access to drinking water in the program area. 


What Still Needs to be Done

Our primary aim is to make sure everyone in the community has easy access to clean drinking water. Together, we will reduce the distance people need to travel to reach water sources to less than 500 meters or ensure that individuals can collect 20 litres of water in under 30 minutes. 

To achieve this, World Vision is planning to construct eight water points throughout the area between 2024 and 2025. This will ensure that 2,182 households in Menkao Centre, including 5,912 children, have reliable access to clean drinking water for years to come.
