Vole Lib Research Institute is a non-profit organization whose mission is to partner and work along side organizations, governments, and community groups in developing countries, to cultivate quality research focused on the use of culture and technological solutions that will enable developing communities to become self-sufficient. Currently we are working on a project in which we are cataloging the various endeavors and research that have been implemented world-wide as solutions to providing clean water in developing countries. Polluted drinking water is the leading cause of death and diseases for people worldwide. The development of a unified solution to this problem is hindered by the accessibility of essential meteorological data and information regarding what has been proposed, discovered, and implemented.  The purpose of this project is to design and develop a repository for collaborative data, research, & information regarding clean water access globally.  We are in the process of creating a content management database system that will serve all those working or wishing to propose clean water solutions around the world.

Statement Issued about current Haiti Water Project:

1 in 6 people in the world don’t have access to clean water and 2 out of 5 people don’t have access to sanitation.  In the Republic of Haiti, especially after the tragedy and devastation of the 2010 earthquake, access to clean drinking water is a critical need. For the well being of its citizens, it is imperative that a solution to the clean water problem in Haiti be researched and developed. Vole Lib Research Institute (VLRI) facilitates the access to and exchange of information that is used in researching different clean water solutions.

The immediate goals of this project are to:

1.) Evaluate and Study Numerous appropriate technologies & available water and sanitation resources.

2.) Create a database of past and present research and findings that will be useful in developing new solutions.

3.) Use the latest information and technology to build capacity and empower communities to attain & develop sustainable solutions to water problems.

4.) Engaging target populations and harvesting indigenous knowledge to ensure community education and coordination of efforts, to insure any proposed system or solution can be indefinitely maintained.

VLRI's mission is to partner and work along side organizations, governments, and community groups in developing countries to cultivate quality research, focused on the use of culture and technological solutions that will enable sustainable communities.
