Water Projects

Our water projects have helped over 300,000 people in more than 20 countries gain reliable access to safe drinking water.

We believe that access to clean water
and sanitation is a human right.

Most Canadians have the luxury of turning on a tap and drinking water without worry. In many developing countries, women and children walk long distances just to access river or lake water to drink, cook with, and bathe in. These water sources, when they’re actually available, are often contaminated by fecal waste, bacteria, parasites, pesticides, and other harmful chemicals. We work with local in-country partners to provide communities with low-tech, inexpensive water tools that connect families with safe, dependable sources of water.

Water Projects

Whether it’s drilling a well or installing a water purification system, the delivery of each water project is a life changing experience for volunteers and the communities they support.

Partnership

Teamwork is key to ensuring sustainable progress in solving the water crisis.

We get to know in-country partners and community members before we visit to understand their water needs and co-create custom, locally relevant solutions.

Education

No water project is complete without community education and training.

We empower communities with water, sanitation, and hygiene education so that they can pass on their knowledge to the next generation.

Sustainability

It’s not enough to deliver life-saving water tools – we need to provide ongoing support to keep the water flowing.

We work with in-country partners to monitor the working status of our wells and water purification systems, making repairs as needed.
