Due to the sheer magnitude of water scarcity problems throughout the developing world, federal, state and local governments are often not in a position to provide the funds required to address these issues, especially in rural areas.

Our approach to effectively delivering our programs is by engaging with trusted partners, providing appropriate water solutions that suit the skills capability of the community and by providing community capacity building directed at the sustainability of the water resource.

It is a priority to have impactful programs that create tangible and quantifiable outcomes to reducing poverty while also resulting in an effective high-value return on investment for our donors.  Value for the money invested is achieved through aligning our projects to communities where a large number of people will be affected - our target community populations range from 500 to 2000 people, therefore each project achieves a significant impact.
