Mission Engagement

After learning about the water crisis and becoming involved in their community's efforts to bring water to the people of rural Africa, some people are thirsty to do more. The Water to Thrive has programs for you to get more engaged in the mission:



About Ambassadors and Advocates

The Water to Thrive Ambassador Program trains committed volunteers to be actively engaged in Water to Thrive's work. By cultivating dedicated, enthusiastic leaders capable of educating others about the global water crisis, Water to Thrive’s partners around the nation are able to grow. Every voice that raises the concern for clean drinking water has a ripple effect, and the result is more clean water for more rural Africans. Ambassadors play a vital role in extending Water to Thrive’s network by personally connecting with people and groups far away from the Water to Thrive headquarters in Austin, TX. Our ambassadors are people who have a passion for our mission and a demonstrated ability to rally others to support our mission in their entire community.

Advocates at W2T help spread the mission in their own group or sphere of influence (church, school, family) to raise funds for a well.  Advocates do not go into the community to spread awareness and raise funds like Ambassadors, but they do commit to ongoing campaigns.

The Water to Thrive staff provides ongoing encouragement and guidance to Ambassadors and Advocates as they engage their local community.

About Water Angels

Over and over again we hear the Water to Thrive model of directing 100% of all full project sponsorships and 100% of all donations over $1000 to the water work is a big reason to support the mission. However, we would not be able to operate this way if we didn’t have a very special group of people – our Water Angels – who fund our operations and ensure we can keep doing what we do.

Water Angels are our special group of supporters who commit to giving $1000 or more each year. This is the money that we use to fund our operations, our marketing, our partnerships, our fundraising and our travel to manage programs in the field. Without their support, we wouldn't be able to do our work and expand into new areas in need.

About Volunteers

Each person on our small staff is an expert in multi-tasking. We manage programs, coordinate events, find funding, speak to groups, and essentially wear a lot of hats. The only way we are able to make everything happen is because of our awesome volunteers. 3-4 times a year, we have major events and these are when our volunters are the most helpful! We couldn't do these great events without you! If you are in the Austin area and would like to be on our shortlist of event volunteers, please let us know. We will happily call upon you to join the team.
