Water to Thrive

Brings clean, safe water to rural African communities. Builds wells and conducts hygiene, sanitation and maintenance training leading to long-term sustainability of the water projects. Supported by U.S. individuals, communities, congregations and schools.

Water to ThriveWater to Thrive is a faith-based nonprofit organization that helps communities in rural Africa gain access to clean, safe water. We work with communities in need that take ownership of their wells, and we connect donors who sponsor these projects with those they help.

Water to Thrive works in partnership with local organizations in the countries where we operate. These organizations are staffed with experts in water development and know the communities they serve better than anyone. Our partners help us determine the scope and depth of the water needed and the number of wells and other water projects necessary in each area. Through our partners, we are able to layout a long-term plan for bringing clean, safe and sustainable water to Africa.

Our water projects are documented using GPS coordinates, allowing for future monitoring of the projects and for transparency with our donors.
