Fast Facts

As you know, many of the statistics from Africa, and West Africa where Deeper Missions currently serves, are staggering:
  • -- 69% of Sub-Saharan Africa population is without access to improved sanitation
  • -- Every year, food and water tainted with fecal matter cause up to 2.5 billion cases of diarrhea among children under five, resulting in 1.5 million child deaths
Energy Poverty
  • -- 66% of the Sub-Saharan Africa population live without access to electricity
  • -- 55% of new connections will need be off-grid in order to reach universal access by 2030
  • -- Only 61% of the population in sub-Saharan Africa have improved sources of drinking water
  • -- Women and girls are the most affected by the disparities in access; they are most likely to be the main water carriers for families
Deeper Missions projects serve to help break the cycle by introducing sustainable, repeatable clean technology projects for communities to heal, increasing their chances at thriving.
