THE LIFEWATER WAY
Water today. Health tomorrow.
Hope for generations.
Every 60 seconds, a child dies from a preventable waterborne disease. More than 844 million people live without access to safe water.
Lifewater engages the global Church to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the unreached. We empower local churches to seek out and serve the needs of the marginalized, loving others in word and deed.
Lifewater does more than build wells. By addressing water access, sanitation and hygiene practices (WASH) in homes and schools, waterborne diseases are virtually eliminated.
Our in-country teams are comprised of 100% local Christian staff to best serve villages. By working with local residents, systems, and structures, programs are more effective and sustainable.
Communities know the pride of ownership. Each village contributes 10-20% of the cost of the water project through labor, materials and/or capital. Lifewater sources only local materials for all clean water projects.
Lifewater uses real-time data and analytics from the field to provide the best service and most sustainable solutions. Our repair and maintenance program monitors all clean water sources to ensure they last for generations to come.
