Local Community Action

We helped found a local group, in Lake Arrowhead, California, which we believe may become a model for other groups throughout the country. The group, Green Team Arrowhead, consists of like-minded individuals from various backgrounds, who are involved in different sectors of the economy. We come together to see what we can do to promote ecology, energy efficiency, and sustainability, along with other social goals. Rather than talk, we do. One person proposes a project, and the others... + read more

Water Filtration in Guatemala

As a new member, it is interesting to me to see the fact that you are using the same filters as those used by Pure Water for the World. This fact indicates a good relationship. As a Rotarian, I am interested in the extent that you are cooperating with the Rotary Clubs in Guatemala. As you may know, The Rotary Club of Guatemala Sur is deeply involved with water filtration using another type of in-home filter. It occurs to me that some applications are better served using one type and other... + read more

The Engine is Out

We took delivery of the car at Redtop Auto in San Bernardino. Bill Kirschner, the owner, is very committed to the cause. He and his technician Melissa are doing the heavy work. The Porsche was driven from 1975 until the early 1980's, at which time it was parked in a field, with only 66,000 miles on it. Needless to say, it became the home to a lot of critters, and was in pretty poor shape when we got it. We took the chrome wheels off and sent them out to be polished. We bought new... + read more

Water Charity Electric Porsche Project

To aid in bringing Water Charity into the public eye, we are working on the Electric Porsche Project. We are doing this with our own funds, and there is no use of Water Charity money for this project. We are converting a 1975 Porsche 914 to run on electric power. When completed, it will have a top speed of 100 miles per hour and a range of 150 miles. It will prominently be marked with Water Charity and Electric designations, and will be sure to attract lots of attention to both topics... + read more

Projects with TERRA

TERRA Resource Development International is a nonprofit corporation founded by three Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. In a few short years, they have been successful in implementing a number of successful water and sanitation projects in Bolivia. We are discussing with TERRA cooperation on a number of projects. They currently are assessing the viability and costs of possible projects in Bolivia. Upon review, we hope to join with them in implementing a number of them. The focus will... + read more

Projects with Global Water

We are finalizing plans to work with Global Water, an organization with extensive experience with water and sanitation projects in Guatemala, other Central American countries, and Africa. Following our strategy to “get things done now”, we are funding projects that Global Water has put together for implementation, using their network of NGOs established through years of projects together. If we can provide the last dollars needed to implement a project that would otherwise sit on the... + read more

Projects With the Peace Corps

We work in close contact with the Peace Corps in Bolivia. Through their administration, we strive to get funds to Volunteers in the field, as quickly as possible, to aid in their water and sanitation projects. The Peace Corps operates under the premise that they are there to provide manpower, education, and training, not money. Sustainability can only be achieved through helping and teaching. Their projects are generally implemented at a very low cost, and are designed for great impact... + read more

Appropriate Technologies Resource Center

We are creating an Appropriate Technologies Resource Center. This will be a repository for references relating to the implementation of appropriate technologies in water and sanitation in developing areas. Most of the solutions are low-tech. They are simple to implement, based on skills which are easy to learn and teach, and utilize low-cost easily-obtainable materials. We are accumulating a library, with resources in every medium, which will provide the basis for learning and teaching... + read more
