With amazing support from here in the US and abroad, and our amazing partners in the field, in our short existence we have been able to provide over 240 communities, several schools and health clinics, access to clean water through a major water source project. We have provided over 1,500 families bio sand filters directly in their homes.
Every filter and project is accompanied by sanitation and hygiene training, and training about the project itself. It is the most important part of any project that the family and communities learn to care for and upkeep their project. Every major project is begun by establishing a Water Committee who establishes a self imposed Water Tax so they can fund future repairs and maintenance THEMSELVES. We want change and sustainability with every dollar spent.
We want change and sustainability with every dollar spent. We have been able to complete all of this without any paid staff in the US and without any funds spent on renting an operating space. With only a little funding spent on necessary bills, we have maintained a 93% project to admin cost ratio.
Who says one person or one organization can’t make a difference?! Just ask the people who we’ve made a difference for. We are changing the world, one community at a time.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words! While actually being in a community when they receive clean water for the first time is impossible to describe with any amount of words or photos, we invite you to follow us on social media @LOVEWATERORG and look around our site to see photos from our work and trips. All media is taken by us and our partners while in the field.
