Sponsor a Water Supply

It costs less than you think, saves lives and reduces poverty.

Could you please help us make a difference

Any amount and currency accepted

Due to the sheer magnitude of the water scarcity crisis throughout the developing world, federal and local governments can often not provide the funds required to address the issues. 

What you get when you sponsor a community water project

  • The satisfaction that you are directly helping hundreds of people who otherwise may never have had access to a clean, safe water supply.

  • Effective altruism.  We ensure value for donor buck with each sponsored community well, typically impacting 500 to 2,000 people.

  • Community name, location and population or school enrolment numbers provided. 

  • The donor's name is acknowledged on a plaque attached to the wellhead.

  • Prompt Action. Donors typically see the results of their investment within one month.

  • Real-time progress reports as the wells are being constructed.

  • A Completion Report is provided after the well is handed over to the community.

Water Solution Methods

Community water supply costs range from US$1,350 to $20,000, depending on the water solution method. 

There are engineering and technical considerations with water movement. Our projects range from a simple hand pump installation to a more complex solar pump installation. Donor funding is matched to the most appropriate water solution method.
