This process can take from 12 – 18 months from start to completion and we are committed to showing you the impact of your gift. During this time, you will see the direct results of your donation with the following three reports:
You will receive a report specific to the region where the village is located. You also receive details about the day-to-day life of families, plan for change, and type of water source you will sponsor.
Mid-way through the project, a status report will be sent outlining progress made and changes already taking place in the region.
Once the village is certified as healthy, you will receive a completion report and certificate that includes photos of the village’s previous water source, new water source, and the local water committee that manages and maintains it.

What happens when you sponsor a village water project?
The community is invested with you.
Community members are required to make meaningful investments into the construction and ongoing maintenance of the water point. Lifewater staff help form local water committees to collect user fees that are used to fix the water source when it inevitably needs repair. From the healthy homes to the water committees – the entire process empowers community members, ensures sustainability for the water source, and creates healthy habits that last for generations.
"In searching for organizations that provided the clean water, Lifewater was the best combination of effective programs and Christian message."
