To save lives through sustainable clean water and equitable educational opportunities.


To provide children and adults living in poverty with:
- Sustainable clean water, healthy sanitation, and hygiene practices
- High-quality and equitable educational opportunities


We select impoverished and underserved communities where we spend months listening actively to women, men, and children. We learn from them and seek to understand what they perceive as the problem, the root-causes, and long-term solutions. We create teams made up of young and adults from the village or community to collect and analyze real-time data together. We rely on scientific evidence to create together innovative and culturally tailored projects which they implement, monitor, evaluate, and sustain themselves. In brief, we empower local populations, which enhances local buy-in and fosters ownership of the project by the entire village or community. We are committed in empowering local populations to solve local problems themselves by using local resources.


We are a collective of ordinary servant and listening leaders who are bold, risk-takers, creative problem solvers, and crazy enough to believe that we can save lives by providing (1) sustainable access to clean water and healthy sanitation, and (2) equitable educational opportunities.
