There’s already a solution!
Our water purification systems have been uniquely designed by our team of engineers to create water technology solutions that bring safe drinking water to at-risk communities at a fraction of the existing market price. But we don’t stop there. For a community to thrive, they must be educated and empowered. Our health and hygiene curriculum and our business training give community leaders the resources they need to bring about generational transformation!
Our Water Purification Systems
The Healing Waters engineering team designs and implements water purification technology for the developing world. We leverage simple, reliable, and powerful tools to provide a lasting supply of safe water using the best technology available. Our systems are consistent in providing:
Removes 99.99% of all bacteria, viruses, and parasites regardless of source water quality or operator error.
An integrated bottle sanitizing station ensures that safe water isn’t put into dirty bottles.
Quality components, many of which can be locally sourced, ensure a water technology solution which will be sustainable for the long term.
GravityPure + SolarPure
We are committed to rigorous quality control and ongoing partnerships as we all do our part to end the global water crisis. Our designs incorporate ease of use, quality construction, low maintenance, and reliability. The technology itself ensures not just safe water, but water conservation as well. We’re able to provide water to every community for pennies on the gallon.
We’re confident that “one-size-fits-all” solutions are not the answer. Each community goes through extensive water testing and is surveyed to ensure the appropriate water purification system is installed. Our systems can be modified and retrofitted for the conditions at a specific site, regardless of electricity. When properly implemented and managed, each water purification system will serve a community for a minimum of ten years.

Our Gravity Pure water purification system is designed to be taken anywhere in the world. Literally. With no need for electricity, this system can be set up in the most remote communities within 4 hours.
- Can be packed into three 50 pound duffel bags (this means that the system can be checked luggage on a flight, not having to sit in customs for months on end in war-torn or corrupt countries)
- Reliable water quality through ultrafiltration
- Can be completely off-grid as long as there is an elevated water supply
- Can produce between 500 and 10,000 liters of clean water per day
- Hand pump for backwashing the ultrafiltration membrane means no replacement filters for years
- Costs depend on the operating model and production rate, but $0.005/liter is typical
Specifically created to withstand the unreliable electricity in many African cities, Solar Pure utilizes solar power to produce safe drinking water incredibly fast.
- Designed for power supplies that are unreliable, variable voltage, or low-voltage
- Integrated bottle re-filling station to quickly sanitize and fill batches of large (20 liter) or small (1-2 liter) bottles
- Large carbon filter for taste and odor polishing without the use of Reverse Osmosis
- Can produce up to 20,000 liters per 12 hour day using any power supply (solar, wind, battery, generator, etc.)
- Costs depend on operating model and production rate, but $0.005/liter is typical
Health & Hygiene Education
In addition to safe water access, understanding how water is contaminated and how to prevent the spread of germs are vital components to improving health. Our health and hygiene staff at Healing Waters empower local trainers to implement our program in their own communities. Healing Waters has two innovative curriculum – one for women and one for children – and our team works with the local trainers to adapt the program delivery for the best reach in each community.
Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
Water-borne diseases are one of the leading causes of death for children under 5 around the world. Reducing water-borne illnesses also means less stunted growth, few sick days from school, and even improved attention at school. Good health requires good habits and teaching kids means they can carry these healthy habits with them for the rest of their lives.
Through six fun, interactive, and practical classes about drinking safe water, how germs make us sick, handwashing, personal hygiene, nutrition, and keeping our environment clean, children learn how they can be healthy – inside and out. The program also uses Psalm 139 to show children that they are marvelous creations immensely loved by God.
YOUNG WOMEN’S CURRICULUM
Clothed in Strength and Dignity
Our Women’s Program teaches women how to protect themselves and their families from illness through health & hygiene education. This information is taught in six lessons through intimate discussion groups that meet in homes in the community and are led by a local facilitator trained by our Health & Hygiene staff.
Our program focuses not only on physical health—but also spiritual and emotional health. With reflections on Psalm 139 and 31, our program shows women their value in God’s eyes. We have found that no matter the context or background – most women feel alone and overwhelmed with the cares of the world. The vision of our program is to provide a vehicle for women to come together with other women, share, and learn about important issues that affect their daily lives.
We also know that because women are influencers in their households and communities, and they will share and spread what they learn in the program with others for even greater impact.
Equipping & Empowering
No long-term solution is complete without the locals empowered to lead the project as their own. Training in the areas of system maintenance, teaching the curriculum, and business development are vital to make a project successful and for a community to thrive. We work with the site partner to develop and implement a community-appropriate water distribution and sales model that when executed, produces income that covers system maintenance costs and additional profit for the site partner.
Site leadership team members are trained in each of these areas and pass a written and oral test leading to certification. We believe that by empowering these leaders with proper training, they will be invested and fully equipped to lead the project with pride and integrity.
