Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We assist East-Africans in building their communities in physical, economic, and spiritual health through the development of clean water sources. It all starts with water. With a viable well, everything gets better- health and hygiene, food sources, reduced workload, improved school attendance and performance, reduced risk of violence against women and young girls, reduced incidence of deadly diseases, and better living conditions. This gives hope for the future.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to develop as many fresh, clean water sources as possible in East Africa. With community involvement and responsibility, a one-time cost of drilling and/or repairing a borehole will provide clean water for more than a decade for that local community.

We search for the neediest, most remote villages where the larger, more commercial drilling rigs cannot go. We have exemplary local leadership and use local workers to operate the drilling rigs. We utilize careful stewardship decisions and rigorous accounting practices to ensure our donor dollars stretch as far as possible, giving our donors the biggest impact possible for their gifts.

We operate three rigs with local trained workers, familiar with the topography and the mechanics of drilling. These crews are overseen by exemplary, experienced leadership combined with rigorous financial accounting.

Since 2000, we have drilled or repaired more than 480 water projects serving more than 700,000 people.
