I truly believe that by working in one project at at time is how we can make a huge impact in the life of children and the communities that we help, and that's how we make the world a better place for all of us.
Your support helps us focus on 4 key areas
1. Education: to help children complete school from kindergarten through graduating from high school and empower them to go to college.
2. Health: to help kids develop healthy habits on nutritional eating, safe drinking water, dental hygiene, sexual education for teens and connect them to services.
3. Empowerment: so kids can build leadership, teamwork and confidence to succeed in the world.
4. Employment: to help teens develop workplace and technical skills to change their life for good.
Why focus on child poverty?
About half of those living in poverty around the world are children. Without focused and constant support, when they grow up to have families of their own, their children will also be born into poverty, creating an endless cycle. We are committed to change the cycle of poverty with every child in the communities that we work and support.
Our Core Values
We think in terms of practical economic solutions. Charity alone is not a long-term solution. We seek sustainable financial solutions that last and grow, so more and more people can equip themselves with access to the water and sanitation solutions they need.
We believe in the power and autonomy of the people we serve. They are people with financial power, rights, and the capabilities to define their own futures. They know the specific needs of their communities and what will work; we have resources that can help make it happen.
We have the experience and the passion to go the distance. We've been dedicated to this issue for over 8 years, building solutions, making progress, and looking at the problem from every angle to find new and better ways to put water expertise to work.
We promote cultural exchange to make projects work that would otherwise not exist or would be underfunded and understaffed.
We provide new benefits and services for poor people living in the countries where we work by improving the social and physical environment around the developing world.
We also provide new opportunities and perhaps a greater vision for volunteers. In the long run, we sincerely hope that we bring more cross-cultural understanding into the world.
"WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GET,
BUT WE MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE."
