We work through local partners.

We partner and invest in local organizations with proven experience in high quality water, sanitation, and health programs (WASH). Our WASH partners share the same values of empowering the local church in rural villages to help people gain access to clean and living water.

Learn our approach and the solutions our partners use to improve access to water and health.


We work closely with our project partners in Asia and Africa to select locations:

• Where the need for safe water is the most urgent

• Where local churches will partner with us to reach the community with clean and living water

• Where the community will participate and contribute towards the success of the water projects - this level of ownership is critical to keep water flowing in the years to come

Choosing the right solution

Our local partners provide access to clean water through a wide range of technologies. They select the most appropriate technology based on physical factors (like terrain and groundwater quality) and cultural factors related to the community’s acceptance of the water technology. We ensure that spare parts can be purchased locally and a nearby network of mechanics can service the water point.

Our most common solutions include drilling or hand-digging a well and installing hand pumps, mechanized wells with solar panels and pumps, spring protection with gravity-fed water, school water treatment systems, and household-level filtration and treatment.

Promoting Sanitation & Hygiene

When clean water starts flowing, the benefits are immediate, especially for women and children. Yet our partners also promote the value of using latrines and safe hand washing behaviors to rural communities, as all three practices—clean water, good sanitation, and hygiene—are essential for improving health.

Constructing the project

The average project takes about 12-18 months. We work in hard places that are often extremely difficult to access, especially during the rainy season. It can take weeks to transport materials to remote villages, and considerable months are spent forming and training water committees, establishing community buy-in, and raising future repair funds. After construction, all water points are tested to ensure the water is safe for drinking.

Empowering the Church

Our partners empower local pastors and Christians to be the face of the water projects in the villages. This takes time in building confidence and capacity of the local Christians who themselves are often marginalized and even persecuted. WASH programs give the local church the opportunity to love, serve, and reach people with clean and living water.

Keeping the water flowing

We believe in training the community on ownership, repairs, and maintenance. It is vital that the community can access their own repair fund and contact a local contractor to repair the water point when needed.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Our team regularly follows up to ensure water points are working and to learn how we might improve the quality of our work. We document the quality of our work based on best practice international standards.

Proving Our Work

We value transparency and show our donors how their funds are used by reporting on every completed water point. Reports include photos, testimonies, the GPS location, and the number of people served to verify the impact of your investment.

Our Solutions

We work with skilled in-country partners to choose the water technology that will best serve a community based on geographical location, terrain, access to spare parts, and local preferences.

Below are some of the solutions we use:

Rope pump well system
Rope pump wells

If the groundwater is easily accessible, we can install rope pump wells that can pull water up to a depth of 15-20 meters.

Hand pump well
Hand pumps

If the ground water is deeper but accessible at 40 meters, we use a drilling rig to reach the aquifer below.

Solar powered water pump
Solar-powered water pumps

If the ground water is beyond the depth of a hand pump, we install a submersible pump that lifts water to the surface, powered by solar panels.

Rebuilt water pump
Rehabilitating hand pumps

If the community is unable to repair a broken hand pump or the water table has dropped, we rebuild the pump and get the water flowing again.

School WASH program

This WASH system treats 200 liters of water per hour through slow sand filtration. The program includes a handwashing station, hygiene education, and latrines.

Villagers around a gravity-fed water source
Gravity-fed systems

We protect a natural spring source, lay underground pipes, and let gravity deliver water into the village through community tap stands.

A biosand water filter system
Biosand filters

These household water filters treat contaminated water, making it safe to drink.

An individual toilet for one family
Household toilets

We educate communities on reducing the spread of disease through building their own toilet.
