Working for Water
Water to Thrive transforms lives in rural Africa by bringing the sustainable blessing of clean, safe water to communities in need by connecting them to social investors, congregations, schools, individuals, and community groups with a heart to make a difference.
1000 Wells … 575,000 People
Since funding our first well in 2008, we have completed projects in hundreds of rural communities in four African countries. As we ended our 10th anniversary year, we reached the milestone of funding 1,000 wells!
As we ended our 10th year of service, we were blessed to reach the amazing milestone of 1,000 wells funded.
Not only does each water project bring clean, safe water to a community of hundreds, but the construction of each project provides employment to hundreds more. Our 1000 wells serve about 575,000 beneficiaries directly, and have had a positive impact on nearly another half a million more.
Thank you for joining us as we have built wells and changed lives. Your support since 2008 has made a difference for a million people, and your support going forward will let us sustain our mission for another decade to come.

Sometimes I couldn’t find anyone to give me breakfast and lunch, since they all went to fetch water. My sisters usually missed class and had no time to study. … I consider myself blessed. My little brothers and I have a safe water source just five minutes away. (more…)
