The Long Road to Clean Water

See How Muskan’s Life Was Transformed

In Muskan’s rural village, the nearest water source is so far away that many are forced to drink the dirty water nearby. Although Muskan spends hours each day gathering clean water for her family . . . sometimes it’s still contaminated.

6 Ways Clean Water Transforms

When you give clean water, every aspect of community life begins to change.

Health

Improving access to clean water reduces the risk of contracting diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, or polio.

Economy

Extra time saved from making long treks translates into increased productivity, more dollars earned, and greater economic growth.

Education

School attendance increases when children aren’t sick from drinking dirty water.

Safety

The risk of harassment and abuse for women and girls decreases while walking to gather water.

Trust

Foundations of trust and friendship are built allowing for future community development.

Hope

Meeting physical needs opens the door for sharing the love of Jesus Christ.

How We Work

Each water project is as unique as the community it serves. We evaluate a community’s specific needs, climate, geography, and cultural factors to determine what type of water project will be the best fit.

SHALLOW WELLS

Shallow wells provide a reliable source of water when a community’s infrastructure, location, or terrain are not suited for deep bore wells.

DEEP BORE WELLS

Where climate and geography permit, drilling deep into the earth for clean water offers the most reliable and sustainable water source for those in need.

SPECIALIZED WATER PROJECTS

Some communities don’t need a well—but they do need additional help getting water to everyone in need.This can include projects like water purification systems, infrastructure piping, storage tanks, and more.
