Our mission is to transform the lives of over one million of the poorest people in the Dominican Republic through clean water distribution plants, business development, and access to the
gospel of Jesus Christ.
You can trust this mission is founded in faith in Jesus Christ. From the beginning, each person on our staff or board has felt called by God to serve in the mission of clean water and Living Water. Today, every water plant is connected to the community's church. Often the pastors are the plant managers. Any profits that do not need to be used for plant maintenance are used by the church to reach more people with the Gospel.
When you give you are supporting the start-up of a Dominican water plant business. The water is sold below market value so everyone can afford it, but also so the community can afford to maintain the plant and provide clean water for many years to come! Less than 4% of people cannot afford it receive the water for free. In addition, each water plant reuses the 5-gallon bottles to store and distribute the water to accumulate less waste.
You know how valuable it is for a community to have ownership in their own growth. We agree with you! That is why our partner NGO in the Dominican Republic, Fundacion WaterWork RD, is staffed by native Dominicans. They know their peoples' culture and values better than anyone. When you give you can know that it is being utilized through well-advised, local advice on where and how plants can be best implemented.
You may think a mission of clean water and Living Water is great but wonder about he quality of technology used. Because of generous givers and a excellence-focused staff, each water plant is built with state-of-the-art water purification, reverse osmosis technology to consistently produce clean, safe water. Each plant is certified by Ministry of Public Health and together produces 135,000 gallons of water each month.
Having access to clean water changes everything.
It improves health, the ability for children to attend school, and for adults to earn a living. Clean water improves the entire economic system of a community.
