THERE IS A SOLUTION

The solution to this water crisis depends on you, us, and them.

The process begins by choosing trusted indigenous partners in countries like India, Cambodia, and Chad. These individuals and organizations are committed to empowering communities through access to water that will continue to flow.

After selecting local partners, the next step is to identify the people who need clean water the most and to establish a network of professionals to install the wells.

Finally, we rely on you to be passionate about the need. Passionate enough to give or share our story.

Giving Clean Water: The Process

Selecting The Best Partners

Neverthirst chooses indigenous partners with proven experience in both water and health programs and who have shown success in project monitoring and financial management.

Of equal importance, these partners also possess strong relationships with communities, local government and local churches.

Designing The System

Once local partners are chosen, the team comes together with the communities to design the most fitting clean water solution and commit to fundraise the work.

Location & Technology

Our team researches areas where the need for safe water is the most urgent. We work through community leaders and invite these communities to apply for a water project. The water technology — from a hand pump to a rain tank — must be chosen by the users. It must reduce time to collect water and contribute to reducing disease.

Community Ownership

It is vital that those receiving water be involved in the process. To that end, we work with communities who are willing to contribute both labor and money. Before beginning a project, we require all families involved to raise funds for the future repair of the hand pump, rain tanks or bio-sand filters.

Construction Begins

Once a water solution is decided and the community has raised the repair fund or contributed in labor, construction can begin. A typical project can take up to 18 months to complete. It’s not a fast process, but it’s a beautiful story of community connection. And in such thirsty areas, it’s an awe-inspiring experience to see fresh water flowing high into the air after a drilling rig hits deep water.

Maintenance Training

We place a high value on training the community in ownership, repairs and maintenance. It is vital that the community knows how to access their own repair fund and contact a local contractor to repair the pump when needed. Our team makes regular follow-up visits to ensure the hand pumps are working and to learn how we might improve the quality of our work.

RESULTS

Since completing our first Water Project with our local partner in Witto South Sudan in 2008, we’ve now completed over 8,575 projects and served over 467,454 people. With your help, we can continue to watch those numbers grow. Every water project represents thousands of lives saved.
