Our Values & Vision

Mission

To provide clean drinking water and effective sanitation to people who have no access, and to help end the World Water Crisis.

Values

A) Effectiveness – We care about helping people first and foremost. The more people we can aid with water the better.

B) Efficiency – We despise the waste and inefficiency that is so rampant in the charity/philanthropic world. We go above and beyond to make sure that we are getting the most bang for the buck… often we are 20x as efficient as our colleagues.

C) Sustainability – We want to make sure our projects have lasting impact. So many charities come in and do an intervention and then leave… never following up on the work. We build sustainability into all of our projects. Often this means using low tech and traditional solutions rather than hyping some new inventions that can not be maintained. The goal is to help people be self-sufficient, not get them dependent on some expensive solution they can not repair when it inevitably breaks down.

How We Do it

We use a variety of methods and solutions… tailored to the specific needs and realities of a given location and the people being served. From rainwater catchment to boreholes, from water filtration to irrigation… sanitation facilities, bringing clean, running water to health clinics, etc. all our projects, programs and initiatives are unique and suited to the problems that exist in that community. Go to our website for more detailed information: https://watercharity.org Every project has its own page, so you can look through more than 5000 pages of details if you are really interested.

Compassionate Actions

We provide clean drinking water and effective sanitation to people who have no access around the world.
