We Partner With Communities

Community ownership is fundamental to long-term sustainability.

90% of our staff

is in the field, native to the communities they serve.

We partner with rural and underserved communities, where there are high incidences of waterborne diseases and a scarcity of aid.

We work closely with community members, engaging them in the process, developing goals and implementation strategies together, and involving them every step of the way. Through this collaboration, communities acquire the tools and knowledge to own their water projects.

We serve entire communities, rather than just individual homes.
Families work together, supporting one another.
