Our Mission

We’re on a mission to end the global water crisis. We build holistic clean water solutions and spread God’s love in at-risk communities around the world, empowering people not just to survive, but to thrive – physically, socially and spiritually.

Our Values


We are believers in Jesus and are committed to honor him in all we do and respond to his call to serve the poor and the suffering by bringing transformation where there is sickness, brokenness and division. 


We are committed to developing projects and solutions that are sustainable in all aspects of ongoing operations. We will partner with local, in-country organizations as much as possible to ensure that projects are technically and culturally appropriate and will be sustainable over time. 


We commit to follow Jesus’ command to be peacemakers and to work to fulfill his prayer that his followers be united as one. We wish to foster reconciliation within the church and to create unity in spirit by encouraging followers of Jesus to focus on what they have in common in their faith rather than those things on which they disagree.


We commit to doing all we do with the utmost integrity. We expect and demand integrity from everyone associated with our work, from our employees and board members to our ministry partners. We want everyone with whom we work to know that they can trust us. We will do what we say we’re going to do and won’t make promises unless we believe that we can keep them.


We commit to delivering projects and solutions that are economically accessible to as many people as possible in the communities which we serve. We will provide equal access to all in the community regardless of race, beliefs, tribe, social status or any other classification. Just as Christ ministered to all people without discrimination, so will we. 


We commit to being accountable to both God and man for the resources with which we are entrusted. We are accountable to both our donors and our partners with whom we work and strive to be transparent in all we do. We adhere to the highest industry standards by employing accepted accounting principles and regular external audits. We endeavor to keep our administrative and fundraising costs as low as possible while simultaneously providing adequate support for our mission-critical objectives. We strive to communicate with our donors through timely and consistent updates on how their funds are being used.
