5 Drops of Impact
While our mission is simple—to provide clean, fresh water to the unreached and untouched across West Africa and India—the truth is that our impact stretches far beyond water. Realizing this, Water of Life commits to five crucial points of impact that we constantly strive to provide with every well we drill:
Give Clean Water
We transform an entire village of 750-1500 people in an unreached region of the world, by drilling a well that not only changes that community’s health forever, but leaves the village having set up an infrastructure and support system for maintaining the well.
Drilling a water well now gives girls their life back to be able to pursue an education. Prior to a new well, children are tasked with walking miles daily to get contaminated water from area rivers. Filling the foundational need of clean water gives them a freedom they never thought possible—the chance to pursue an education and dream of a better life.
Our unique model includes empowering men in local villages to help drill, service and maintain the wells, learning a new trade and having the pride of ownership and the ability to provide for his family.
Disrupt the Statistics
In most of these villages, one of every three children die before nine months of age due to health issues associated with contaminated water. The foundational need for clean water literally saves 10-20 lives every year in a village.
Offer Spiritual Infrastructure
What happens after we leave a village and many of the indigenous people have accepted Christ? We’ve established, over the years, a partner network of Pastors that has grown to over 5,000 in size, permanently establishing churches in the village, Bible studies, and regular check-in and accountability and support to nurture and foster their spiritual growth and expand the reach of the gospel long after we leave.
When we say beyond the well, it’s because
our work truly goes beyond the well,
establishing a ripple effect that is part of our foundational core beliefs.
