Together, our impact is multiplied

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:
If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. –Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 ESV

Behind every successful individual is a great team. In life, there’s only so much you can accomplish on your own—no man is an island. To enact real change, we must join forces for one purpose: to make a difference that lasts for eternity.

 




 
 
 
 

This month, we’re asking you and your team to start a fundraiser to provide clean water for 30 people. This may sound daunting—but working together, it’s completely doable. Gather your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, distant relatives—anyone—and start moving!


Here’s your team’s goal:

$450 – Provide 30 people with clean water




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
 

Few of us have the means, connections, or knowledge to fund and construct an entire clean-water project on our own. It takes a group effort to carry a project from the initial dream, to raising funds, to implementation, and completion.

Clean-water projects touch more than just one person . . . they transform entire communities.

This March, let’s not take our unlimited access to clean water for granted. For 663 million people, dirty water—or simply the lack of water—is completely normal. Every year, nearly one million people die from water-related causes.

So let’s not simply wish this crisis away, but be a part of the solution.

Why Water?

 

We believe clean water can transform lives.

Clean water improves overall health and sanitation, provides time for education and employment opportunities, and encourages gender equality. Traveling to and from a water source not only eats up valuable time, but can also be dangerous for women, who gather water more frequently than men. Investing in clean water also supports local economies, as less time spent fetching water means more time pursuing economic opportunities.

Most importantly, it allows us to share the Gospel with men, women, and children around the world. We have seen time and time again that clean water is the single most powerful way to bring holistic health to an impoverished community.

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.

$15,000

Specialized Water Projects

Communities have different water needs: filtration systems, cisterns, piping, storage tanks, hand dug wells, etc. Whatever the solution, we are committed to providing the infrastructure needed to get clean water flowing in impoverished communities.

Crisis: In Brief

663 million people lack access to clean water. That’s one out of every nine people on the planet.

Nearly one million people die every year from water, hygiene-related reasons. Nearly 100 percent live in the developing world.

A child will die every 20 seconds from poor sanitation conditions.

Women and young girls will spend an average of 6 hours a day fetching water in developing countries.

An american taking a 5-minute shower uses more water than a person in the developing world uses in an entire day.

 

With Global Access to Clean Water:

More than 1.5 million children could be saved from death each year.

Women gain equal access to productive resources, enabling global crop productivity to increase by 20-30 percent.

150 million people would no longer go hungry.

Over 443 million school hours would be gained each year.


 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 

THE DIFFERENCE CLEAN WATER MAKES
 

Giving clean water to a community opens the doors to a world of change. Water is the catalyst for overcoming the cycle of poverty and creating opportunity for growth and progress. We see clean water as more than just a benefit . . . it’s a new beginning . . . a second chance . . . hope for a better




 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

HOW WE WORK

 
 
 
 

Our strategy is to provide communities with sustainable, high quality
infrastructure to keep clean water flowing year-round.


 
 

Specialized Water Projects

Varying climates and geography present a range of challenges when it comes to implementing water projects. We strive to offer customized solutions for each community based on their specific needs. We have the capacity to drill deep-bore wells, construct cisterns, implement complex piping and purification systems, provide water storage systems for drought seasons, and much more.

Maintenance Training

Far too often, water projects become obsolete from simple mechanical malfunctions. To combat this, we recruit members of each community to be specially trained in the mechanical upkeep of the well site. Empowering people to take pride in the survival of their water project promotes dignity and emphasizes ownership.


 
 



where we work

 
 
 

Since 2009, World Help has provided 706 wells and water projects in 15 countries around the world.
