40,403 Healthy Homes
Safe water alone can’t prevent the spread of water-related illnesses. The solution is all-encompassing and it starts house by house.

829 Water Sources
Every safe water source represents access to clean water for a whole village, school, or church.
An entire community is empowered with a water source close to home. And because each community is unique so are the water sources engineers create for them. Every water source is custom built to meet a community’s needs for years to come.
When you give safe water, you give a whole community access to this life-changing resource. Mothers have more time to care for their families and start new businesses. Children can stay in school. Whole communites are empowered to rise out of poverty and thrive as God intended.
