Water for Good

About

Program Descriptions

Water Wells: We drill wells and rehabilitate (fix) broken or forgotten wells.

Water pump maintenance: To solve the water crisis FOR GOOD, we focus on keeping the pumps going year, after year. Our Central African maintenance teams visit pumps on a regular basis, maintaining over 1,000 pumps. We use a 5-year model, where we fund the maintenance the first year, and over the following 4 years, we increase the financial contribution from the village that owns the well, until by the end of year 5, the village is paying for their own maintenance. This guarantees that the maintenance will continue without outside donations needed.

Radio: Our short-wave radio station covers almost half of the country with messages of peace & reconciliation, Christian education, and development messages.

Agricultural Program: Our Agricultural program focuses on expanding the resources of Central African farmers through seed banks, demonstration gardens, tree nurseries, and research, training, and other farmer support operations.
