Clean Water

Alfonso Gaerlan Galarpe Jr., founded Enhance A Village from the vision of his late mother Paz to empower and improve people's lives in impoverished rural areas through sustainable solutions, prioritizing self-sufficiency and independence. Rather than relying on traditional ongoing fundraising models, EAV seeks to become redundant in their communities. With your support, EAV can make a lasting impact on poverty and create a more equitable world.

To address this issue, Enhance A Village, Inc. has been working to provide sustainable and safe water solutions to communities in need. By providing a water chlorinator to the village of Kuyaoyao in Quezon province and Initao in Misamis Oriental, EAV is helping to ensure that these communities have access to clean and safe drinking water. With EAV's support, these communities can improve their health and wellbeing, and take a significant step towards self-sufficiency and independence.


Two billion people lack safe drinking water, more than twice lack safe sanitation. (2017, July). Retrieved from Unicef:

Many of us take for granted of turning the faucet on and drinking clean water instantly at the convenience of our home. In many parts of the world, it takes great effort to bring drinkable water to a resident or a community. Villagers, mostly women and children, brave and trek dangerous trails, rivers, and ocean to provide the basic human need.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), diarrhea kills 2,195 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined. About 88% of diarrhea-associated deaths are attributable to unsafe water, inadequate sanitation, and insufficient hygiene. With your support, we can prevent the children from dying. 

Your donations provide clean drinking water by purchasing a chlorine generator to safely produce chlorine gas that is injected into the water to kill waterborne pathogens. This approach enables the villagers to use existing water sources such as a water well with unknown disease-producing agents.  Additionally, your assistance provides hygiene classes as a preventive measure to combat diarrhea.

 With your time to volunteer, a collective effort to provide the basic need to a village enhances the possibility of a community receiving a chlorine generator.  

Every little step helps!   Alleviating poverty takes a strategic approach to provide basic needs before the transformation can begin. Your donation and volunteer effort offer the solution to give the supply of clean water to a community.  Donate and volunteer today and change lives!
