Our solution is simple.  We use tried and proven, low-cost, efficient methods to achieve solutions that originate in the community being served.  Our projects are done quickly, and sustainably.

Water Charity supports, and has been supported by, these fine organizations:

Water Charity


From our inception in 2008 to 2014, we started with nothing and developed a powerful, unique model to help people around the world.  With our entire focus on doing low cost, high impact projects, we built upon successes, and grew without much fanfare.  We had nearly no overhead, were all-volunteer, and put the actual end product first.  Where other nonprofits have large full time staff, fancy offices, and high salaries, we donated our time, paid our own way, and eschewed photo ops and gala benefits.

We like to call this period Water Charity Phase 1.

Now, we have reached a pivotal stage where we can afford to do even bigger projects, contract out some of our work, employ interns and volunteers, and partner with organizations like the National Peace Corps Association.  All of this means that we are embarking on a period of truly exponential growth.  We are applying for larger grants, doubling down on our most successful models, and even training Peace Corps volunteers in the field.  Our expertise in all areas of water and sanitation, in regions across the globe, allows us to help PCVs, RPCVs and NGOs find and implement the most appropriate and efficient technology to meet the need at hand.  In this way, our beneficiary communities don't have to reinvent the wheel.  

It is an exciting time.  More than ever, your help is greatly appreciated and needed as we ramp up to try and help 5 million people, and increase our ability to do relief projects for disasters, and other types of development and aid work.  Feel free to continue adopting or chipping in on our low cost projects directly from their project pages, but also consider donating unallocated funds so we can start projects immediately out of pocket, and that help with our capacity building growth.  

Thanks for being a part of this.  Even if all you can do is tell a few people about the work we are doing, it makes a difference.
