Clean Water for Haiti

Impact Report on Clean Water for Haiti’s Filter Program

Program activities
Clean Water for Haiti was established in 2001 and is the largest provider of biosand filters in Haiti. On average, 75% of filters are still in use 5 years after installation.



$20 gives a Haitian access to clean water for at least one year.


Clean Water for Haiti collected data on usage rates after filters were installed. To estimate the change attributable to the program, Clean Water for Haiti made an educated guess as to how participants would have fared without the program.

Data source
All filters are visited 1 month, 3 months, 1 year and 5 years after installation. All data from visits is recorded. Clean water for Haiti tracks the adoption rate of the filters over time and shows any issues in production, education, and technician training.

Attribution method
Clean Water for Haiti conjectures that 20% of clients would have gained access to clean water through other pathways in the absence of the intervention. It therefore attributes 80% of the increase in clean water access to the filter program.

This report was created by Clean Water for Haiti with self­-reported data using ImpactMatters' impact reporting platform. This report covers January 2017 to December 2017.
