The Neverthirst 100% model has been a part of our humble beginnings since January of 2009.
Our friends, family and Board have been gracious in their support of our administrative expenses while you (the public) have given and allowed us to serve over 100,000 with clean water through the local church.
In the past two and a half years we have grown in our understanding of the role God would have us play in serving the church through clean water in the developing world. Providing sustainable clean water solutions that have the ability to impact the community for generations to come is a tremendous challenge.
It involves educating the local church, mobilizing the community and ensuring each project uses appropriate technology that is sustainable long after Neverthirst has left a particular area.
As we have committed ourselves to serving the local church with excellence, we are expanding our operations and services not only in India and Africa, but in our home offices as well. As we emerge into a young community development organization, our Board of Directors feel it wise to transition into a more traditional operating model used by a vast majority of non profit organizations like our own.
As of August 15th we will no longer promote the 100% model on our website or in any of our literature.
Remaining efficient and responsible with the resources God has entrusted us to administer, the Board of Directors has committed to see that Neverthirst administrative funding does not exceed 20% of total expenditures. This percentage is in line with many Christian organizations we hold in high regard.
Also, any gifts made under the 100% model prior to August 15th will continue to directly support our work in the field.
We continue to be excited about how God is using your partnership to provide communities throughout India and Africa with clean water through the local church. Our newest Adopt a Village model which is being implemented in India is just the beginning of our new approach to total village clean water and sanitation through the local church.
The most exciting aspect of these new initiatives is the ability for the local church to engage the community in extremely important and relative ways that not only meet needs, but equip the people to engage in their own solutions. Our belief is that soon the local church will be recognized as a positive agent for change and be known for their love of the people through this practical demonstration as well as proclamation of the Word. For more information about our new projects, visit our new ‘Adopt a Village' section or see how you can sponsor a woman through this process.
Also, be on the lookout for news of our Water is Life benefit that will be held this October 13th at Ted's Garage in downtown Birmingham. Join us as we welcome David Platt and others to share about their experience with Neverthirst! For more information, go HERE.
As always, thank you for your support of our work which has allowed so many people to receive clean and living water through the local church.
