Our Water Projects
All of our water projects are focused on achieving three primary goals:
- Provide clean water access to communities in need.
- Deliver continuous water access for many years through sustainable projects.
- Bring smiles, relief and joy to the communities we serve.
Domestic Well Projects
We work with individual family homes where water availability is scarce or contaminated. These projects significantly help families in rural areas of the United States get the water access they deserve.
Solar Water Projects
In many communities, groundwater is extracted through electric water pumps that use diesel to fuel their systems, which makes projects cost-prohibitive for many of the communities we serve. Solar-powered pumps provide operationally, financially and environmentally sustainable extraction of groundwater.
Deep Borehole Wells
Deep borehole wells provide water access to homes and communities where clean water is scarce. In such areas, deep borehole wells can be sunk hundreds of meters into subterranean groundwater to provide fresh, clean water access.

Alia’s story is symbolic of many stories we come across during our time in the field. Every year we get the opportunity to personally witness the before and after of how lives are changed when they get access to clean drinking water. Their joy only strengthens us to continue toward our goal of providing clean, sustainable water solutions to communities in need.
