Lifewater: providing water, health, and hope since 1977

Who We Are

Lifewater International is a non-profit, Christian water development organization dedicated to effectively and sustainably serving the world’s rural poor through integrated water, sanitation, and hygiene programs.

For over 35 years, Lifewater has focused on contextually appropriate, low-tech water development. Lifewater trains, equips, and empowers local partners to provide their own communities with safe water. The goal is to empower the local population with self-sustaining solutions versus temporary relief.

Lifewater International is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Christian water development organization that intentionally serves all people regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or gender.

Our Belief About Christian Water Development

As a Christian organization, we are called by Jesus to love and serve the poor in a dignifying, empowering, and transformational manner. While many Christian organizations are called to provide disaster relief, microfinance, build houses, or plant churches, Lifewater International is called to bring water, health, and hope to the world’s most vulnerable people using our mWASH approach.

We believe, as Jesus taught, that when we serve the poor, we are serving Him. We treat each partner, community, family, and person with dignity and respect. We view every interaction as an opportunity to reflect God’s love in word and in deed.

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)

Providing water, sanitation, and hygiene to God’s beloved poor is a worthy calling. We spend our lives and our resources sacrificially and generously toward those whom God loves. To read more about transformational water development, click here.
