February 15, 2019: Construction complete

The new safe water source is now complete in Wario Duwancho!

Clean, safe water transforms a village. Everyone gathers to celebrate, thanking God for the miracle in their community.

February 1, 2019: Construction started

Work is officially underway to build a safe water source for Wario Duwancho. Our local teams are using technology appropriate to the region and geography to ensure the new water source is sustainable.

January 15, 2019: Community Prerequisites met

Wario Duwancho has completed all of the prerequisites for building a safe water source: There are already a number of Healthy Homes and an active water committee, plus the 15% community contribution is in place.

The next step is to build a safe water source. As soon as weather and scheduling allows, construction will begin on a new water source for the community.

November 30, 2018: Water Committee formed

Good news! Wario Duwancho has selected water committee members to manage the new village water source.

Forming a water committee is a key step toward establishing a safe water source in a village. Committees are made up of local men and women who manage the well and collect fees, ensuring the community’s investment lasts for generations to come.

Your donation is restricted for use within the program region for which the water project is located. Project cost estimates are established from program averages across all Lifewater programs and are based on the population size of the village. Community contributions are included in the program costs but not in the program funding goals. Real-time results are provided from the actual project sponsored. Occasionally Lifewater will receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need in the same program region.

All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that Lifewater has complete control over the use of all donated funds. Board-approved policy establishes that all gifts restricted for a specific project be applied to the restricted program, with up to ten percent used for administrative and fundraising purposes.
