Our Work

The Problem

In Sub-Saharan Africa, 313 million people lack access to clean water. Women and children also spend an estimated 200 million hours gathering water every day.

Too many lives are lost due to unsafe water, too much time wasted by women and children walking for water and too much of the developing world’s modest income spent on sourcing water.

Without access to sustainable sources of water, it’s impossible to grow healthy food and cycles of poverty continue.

Together we can change this and ensure communities have the life essentials they need to thrive.

Every human deserves access to clean water,
healthy food and educational opportunities.

Our Model

When you invest in our work,
you are providing long-term solutions

1 water project can benefit 1,000+ people

1 greenhouse can generate over $200 USD in surplus sales per harvest

Every $1 invested in our work can yield $4-12 in economic returns

40% of income generated from our programs is required to be reinvested into education

Clean Water and Food Change Everything

  • Health

    Clean water is the first line of defense - it prevents water-borne diseases and improves health and hygiene. Water also sustains livestock and crops, allowing entire communities to have stable livelihoods and food sources.

  • Education

    Clean water helps keep children in school, especially young girls who are often responsible for collecting water. More time spent in the classroom means a brighter future for boys and girls.

  • Environment

    Access to clean water and climate-smart agriculture help protect livelihoods and communities from the impacts of climate change and environmental shocks and degradation. Sustainable agriculture, like our greenhouses, also conserves water and natural resources.

  • Income

    Savings and surplus from water and farming sales translate to income generation. These added revenue streams give communities flexibility in their budget and allow them to cover school fees, school supplies and other basic needs.

  • Equity

    Access to a reliable water source alleviates multiple burdens for women and girls, giving women time to stay in school, pursue income-generating activities, and increase overall health and wellness.

  • Opportunity

    Water and sustainable agriculture provide a platform for our WASH and Agribusiness training. These programs provide future generations with new skills and expertise, allowing communities to establish income-generating opportunities.

One water project can
benefit over 1,000 people.
