A Typical Water Ambassadors Canada Project

Take a look at what we do, whether it’s drilling a well or installing a water purification system, each water project is a life changing experience for both volunteers and communities alike.

Community Engagement

Solving the global water crisis involves teamwork. We communicate with in-country partners, organizations and local villagers before we ever set foot in these communities to understand their water needs and create custom solutions. We believe community engagement is key to ensure long-term, sustainable change.

Community Education

Knowledge is power, and no water trip is complete without community education and training. To ensure a sustainable solution after our team leaves, we empower communities with basic water, sanitation and hygiene tips so that they can become water ambassadors themselves.

Maintenance and Monitoring

Water Ambassadors Canada works with in-country partners to continually monitor the status and functionality of our wells and purification systems. Communities notify our partners if there any issues with the water technologies so that our team can arrange to have them repaired.
