You can give sustainable clean water to the world's neglected poor.


Nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide live without clean water. Most live in rural areas and spend extraordinary amounts of time collecting water from wherever they can. Nearly all of this water carries disease-causing bacteria and parasites.

Wherever clean water initiatives are giving people access to a reliable supply of clean water in their community, water system maintenance and management training is also provided.

In addition, latrine installation, sanitation training, health education, disease prevention programs, education, training, and increased food production methods often accompany clean water initiatives to ensure that families experience the full benefit of having clean water.

You can give to support these featured initiatives or you can give to where most needed at this time within our clean water initiatives.

The water is often contaminated and can cause serious illness or even death. Your donation will help provide easy-to-make and maintain biosand water filters that purify contaminated water and ensure that clean water is available for a family, right at home.

Clean Water for Families in the Philippines

Preventable illnesses, such as diarrhea, are among the top five causes of illness and death, especially for children. Water is a key starting point for transformation: the process of planning and building a water system together, as a community, is often a catalyst for communities to begin making other positive changes in their community. Your donation will help ensure that vulnerable communities in the Philippines gain access to clean water and can begin transforming their lives.

Clean Water for Families in Talaxcoc, Guatemala

Mothers and children walk long distances every day to collect water. The main water source for their community is a river at the bottom of the valley, proving to be a challenging hike just to get water, water which has been contaminated by sewage and waste from an upstream urban town. In order to get their day’s supply, families make the 2 to 3 kilometre trek each way to the river several times each day. Your donation will help mothers and their children gain access to safe drinking water. When the water system is complete, safe water will be piped right into Talaxcoc, reducing sickness, time, and stress for families.
