Delta Sigma Theta has an extensive history of involvement in international issues, including human rights and developing infrastructure. This involvement led to the establishment of several chapters outside of the United States and the participation in projects related to addressing the needs of diverse cultures.
Water Tanks and Wells
Clean water, or the lack of it, is one of the major reasons why five million children in Africa succumb annually to water borne illnesses. Having recognized that people who live outside the reality of readily accessible clean water may take its availability for granted; Water for Children Africa provides safe water tanks in rural villages on the continent. Delta Sigma Theta is a partner with this uniquely responsive non-profit organization to address the need for clean water. The sorority’s goal is to provide an underground water well in Ghana. In addition, each of the sorority’s seven regions will sponsor one above ground water tank at seven Kenyan elementary schools.

Surviving on less than one dollar a day, more than one billion of the world’s children live in extreme poverty. LASB plans to make monetary donations and other gifts that will be pooled with those of other sponsors seeking to impact the communities where these children live. The recipient child will receive health care, education, nutritious food, and other necessities.
