“His vision for the community was bigger than we could imagine. Our hope is to keep his legacy alive.” – JB Dondolo’s children.

About Us

JB Dondolo, Inc. is a nonprofit organization founded by Dondolo’s children in November 2012. The organization is named after the late father, JB Dondolo, an orphan, farmer, and humanitarian advocate whose values and principles on giving continue to inspire his children, friends, and families across the world. JB Dondolo played a critical role in the fight against poverty in his community and Dondolo’s children saw the need to form this organization in honor of their father so his legacy of good deeds continues.

Our Mission

Our mission is to remove barriers of access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene in underserved and impoverished communities to reduce poverty and promote gender equity.

Our Vision

Our vision is to see a world where clean water is not an obstacle to pursuing a better and more equitable life.

Our Values

We believe in the legacy of giving and helping marginalized communities because we know everyone deserves the chance to have a better life. We believe this legacy will help advance equity, enrich lives, and create a positive ripple effect for future generations to come.

OUR APPROACH

At JB Dondolo, we finish what has been started but left incomplete due to hardships (death, illness, no means to fund). We work on the critical needs first and use an active listening approach to addressing needs by working with expert partners to make informed decisions and implement programs and innovations effectively, sustainably, and to scale. Our interest is in those projects that promote community growth and a better future for everyone.

Our current countries of focus are Zimbabwe and the United States. The truth is that regardless of whether a nation is industrialized or not, people in need are everywhere. Private and public agencies are there but possess limited resources and cannot provide for every community in need of assistance or basic necessities. This leaves a large segment of the low-income population with unmet needs that we are here to help with

OUR GOALS

We are proud supporters of the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and our goals are to help advance the following below:

SDG 1 image

SDG 1: NO POVERTY | Target 1.4

By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance.

We believe that water is a human right and as a natural resource, we want to ensure its access as a basic service to all.

SDG 5 image

SDG 5: GENDER EQUALITY | Target 5.a

Undertake reforms to give women equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to ownership and control over land and other forms of property, financial services, inheritance and natural resources, in accordance with national laws
We recognize that to provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene for all requires a gender lens focusing on women and girls as primary water collectors.

SDG 6 image

SDG 6: CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION | Target 6.1, 6.2, and 6.a

By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all

By 2030, achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations

By 2030, expand international cooperation and capacity-building support to developing countries in water- and sanitation-related activities and programmes, including water harvesting, desalination, water efficiency, wastewater treatment, recycling and reuse technologies

Water, sanitation, and hygiene is at the core of who we are and helping one another through international cooperation is how we have helped make a difference in the lives of many already.
