Lack of access to running water is an issue in many developing countries, but it is also a problem in the United States. Nearly 40 percent of the homes in the Navajo Nation lack running water or sanitation, and many are in such remote areas that they will never be able to connect to a water line. But the real issue being their water is contaminated with pestisides, heavy metals, ecoli, and many other things making the water not drinkable. The Preservation Project is working with the Tsaile-Wheatfields-Blackrock Watershed, and the Tsaile-Wheatfields Farmers Association, which resides within the Navajo Nation; to establish a water purification facility that is powered by solar energy.

Preservation Earth Project's trip to Haiti was a huge success. The team installed a solar array to power a water purification system and other essentials. We installed an ice machine and began the building if a solar platform that will power a school for 600 students at Complexe Educatif Men Nan Men in Ganthier. We also visited a village of 500 whose only source of power is a solar panel and 2 leaking batteries. We have to help these people.. Please help us make this happen.
