Who we are

Water to Life is a non-profit that was birthed from a passion to help people put justice-oriented faith into action. We strive to do asset-based community development, primarily in Haiti now, by building long term relationships between local churches that starts with a water filter and education program. Clean water is one of the most transformational things for a community to improve life for all. By using churches to host the programs, we hope to eventually care for the entire person from body to spirit. It starts with water and we hope over time sustains healthy living for entire communities. We don’t always get it right, but we always try to do it better.
