God empowers people of faith to be agents of change, therefore

How We Work
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Living Waters for the World. Unlike organizations that rely on paid staff to initiate and execute water projects, Living Waters for the World relies on volunteer teams trained by volunteer instructors working within volunteer-led networks. LWW’s small staff of 3 full-time and 3 part-time employees exists to facilitate the activity and long-term impact of this volunteer force.
Over 2,000 individuals have trained at Clean Water U, and they have engaged an estimated 10,000+ volunteers as members of LWW water teams. Volunteers have also guided the establishment of international networks, the development of Clean Water U’s curriculum, and much more!
Volunteers have made LWW what it is today and will play an integral role in ensuring clean water for generation in the communities LWW serves.
Living Waters for the World (LWW) trains volunteers to establish and lead water mission teams that partner with communities to implement and operate sustainable water purification systems and health education programs.
LWW Networks come alongside water teams and partners throughout every phase of a water project. They provide essential support for sustainable water systems that produce clean water for a generation.
NOTE: LWW does not drill wells or provide other water access solutions. LWW empowers communities to treat available but contaminated water.
