    Impact Statement
    $2,151,142 total costs / 10,484,692 person-years of clean water = roughly $0.21 provides a year's worth of safe, reliable access to clean water to a person in need [2021 USD]
    Program Context
    Hope Water Africa: This program builts water supply systems to increase access to drinking water and provides purification systems to ensure high water quality.
    Data Time Period
    10/1/22 to 9/30/23
    Benchmark for Scoring
    Impact scores of water quality & supply programs are based on a WHO estimate of the value of clean drinking water access in developing regions. Programs receive an Impact score of 100 if they provide a person-year of clean water at a cost of less than 75% of the estimated value of water access, and a score of 80 if they do so for less than 125% of the value. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the benchmark for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 65. This program's cost to provide clean water is less than 75% of the estimated value of clean water access.
    Methodology
    This impact score was determined through the Water Quality & Supply methodology which is fully detailed in the Charity Navigator Guide to Ratings. Analysis conducted in 2024 by Charity Navigator using data submitted by the nonprofit, theory and evidence from scientific research studies, and public datasets.
    Data Source
    The nonprofit submitted data on the number of beneficiaries served in one year, which we use to calculate how many person-years of clean water a nonprofit provides.
