Arc Solutions

 

THE ORGANIZATION

Arc Solutions is a nonprofit organization working to provide water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) for people living in conflict zones. Arc Solutions works exclusively in conflict zones because conflict creates a high need for WASH services for affected populations. Because few organizations are willing to incur the risks involved in working in conflict zones, there is a huge gap between the needs of conflict-affected people and the international community’s response to those needs. Founded in 2012, Arc Solutions has expanded into four geographic locations: Afghanistan, the Central African Republic (CAR), Gaza, and Somalia. Arc Solutions implements projects through partner organizations and aims to build the capacity of local organizations.

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

• Arc Solutions does a variety of WASH projects based on the local context and needs. Upcoming projects include: o Well rehabilitation and community health training in CAR and Somalia. o Well maintenance sponsorships using a circuit rider model in CAR. o Drilling wells and completing community health training in Afghanistan. o Installation of a desalination unit at a hospital in Gaza.

Other operations include ongoing monitoring and evaluation, building and maintaining partner relationships, and research for new partners, geographic locations, and solution types.

Grants, marketing, and fundraising are other important areas within the organization.

 

OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENT INVOLVEMENT

Flexible internships are available based on organization’s needs and intern’s areas of interest. Potential areas of work include grant research and writing, content writing, marketing, assisting with program design, and social media. Great opportunity for anyone interested in getting an insider’s look at how a nonprofit runs! We are also open to discussing research possibilities.

Freshwater Project International / Freshwater Malawi

Freshwater Project International is the US-based, sister organization of Freshwater Malawi, a local non-governmental, non-profit organization founded and run by Malawians for Malawians. Freshwater Malawi has used a community-driven approach to empower the people of the villages to take full ownership of their wells by establishing a water-point committee and providing the manpower and local materials for the actual construction of the wells. This sense of ownership and responsibility for the wells ensures the sustainability of the projects. Freshwater Malawi is widely known and respected throughout the country, having conducted water and sanitation projects in 24 out of the 28 districts. These tightly budgeted projects have provided clean water and basic sanitation services to nearly 800,000 Malawians.

Nuba Water Project

History

Nuba Water Project was founded in 2006 in Denver by businessman Steve Riley and two Sudanese refugees, George Tuto and Ibrahim Agor. Our work is made possible by our direct connections with key people living in the Nuba Mountains. Nuba Water Project is not affiliated with any government or religious institutions. We are a non-profit 501c3 organization committed to financial accountability at all levels of our organization. 

Mission

Our mission is to bring clean water to the Sudanese people of the Nuba Mountains. We do that by purchasing and delivering water pump repair kits and Safe Water Drops. Our work is for the benefit of all Nuba people regardless of religious or ethnic associations.

Note: In response to the current crisis in the Nuba Mountains, we have expanded our current work to include humanitarian relief (delivery of soap, salt, medical supplies) and educational scholarships for refugees who have fled their villages to surrounding countries. 

Recent Projects

Despite government-sponsored attacks on innocent civilians in the Nuba Mountains, NWP has been able to deliver crisis relief supplies, Safi Drops, and over 720 water pump repair kits. In addition, seven student refugees have been able to continue their educaiton through tuition scholarships and we have been able to support secondary educaiton in three schools still functioning in the crisis region.

Join us for our annual Walk for Sudan - participate as an individual or gather some friends to form a fundraising team. Go to www.walkfosudan.org for more information. It is held in the afternoon of the third Sudan of October at Cherry Creek State Park. Manute Bol, former NBA, was our special guest in 2009. Funds raised are used for our projects.
