Since the organization was founded, Living Lands & Waters has grown to be the only “industrial strength” river cleanup organization like it in the world.
Living Lands & Waters
Spending up to 9 months a year living and traveling on the barge, the Living Lands & Waters' crew hosts river cleanups, watershed conservation initiatives, workshops, tree plantings and other key conservation efforts. Our mission is to: To aid in the protection, preservation and restoration of the natural environment of the nations’ major rivers and their watersheds; To expand awareness of environmental issues and responsibility encompassing the river; and to create a desire and an opportunity for stewardship and responsibility for a cleaner river environment.
At least 663 million people lack access to safe water. Half of the world's hospital beds hold patients suffering from water-related diseases. Living Water International is addressing the most basic of physical needs by helping deprived communities acquire safe, clean water. Our goal is to substantially ease the global water crisis while addressing root causes such as injustice, oppression, and abject poverty. Our passion is to see communities and worldviews transformed, both among those in desperate physical need and among those who have been blessed with much.

For over nine years, we have been helping communities gain access to clean, safe water by providing training, expertise and financial support for water project construction through our staff and implementing partners.
Our mission is to improve people’s lives by helping communities protect, conserve and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends.
Trees, Water & People
This mission is guided by two core beliefs: that natural resources are best protected when local people play an active role in their care and management; and preserving local trees, wetlands, and watersheds is essential for the ongoing social, economic, and environmental health of communities everywhere.
Clean, safe water is something most of us take for granted, but nearly 750 million people do not have access to it and 2.5 billion have nowhere safe and clean to go to the toilet. As a result, 1,400 children die every day from easily prevented diarrheal diseases. Millions more are unable to attend school. Millions of women are unable to work because they spend so much time caring for sick children, collecting water.
Together with local organizations, WaterAid uses practical, sustainable solutions to provide safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene education to the poorest people in developing countries. WaterAid works with individuals and their families, paying special attention to the most vulnerable people, to help them set up, operate, manage and maintain their own projects.
Every day people (mainly children) all over our world suffer and die because they do not have access to clean drinking water. WaterHope is a non-profit foundation established to raise money for these people.
100% of public donations go directly to the children of the world who do not have access to fresh water, and with those donations, WaterHope could set about fulfilling its purpose: to become part of the solution to the growing water crisis, to alleviate the suffering of our global brothers and sisters, and to provide people a way to show their love of others by donating their time and talents to the WaterHope cause. To date, WaterHope has raised over $1.2 million and completed over 50 successful and sustainable water projects. We have a presence in eight countries on two continents with the goal and capability to expand further every year.
The “water problem,” which in reality is a large set of interrelated problems, is a prime candidate for being the biggest social/health problem facing our world today. But there is good news too: lack of access to clean water is a problem that is altogether preventable. So why then has the problem not been eliminated? It’s complicated, but the short answer is that, in the places on the map where the problem is most pronounced, the resources needed to solve the problem are absent. There are, of course, other groups working on providing people with clean water, but the resources being invested at present are quite literally dwarfed by the size of the problem. At Well Water Global, we want to do whatever we can to reverse that ratio.
Well Water Global
Well Water Global's response is to confront the water problem on two fronts: scarcity and contamination. Water Scarcity: The majority of the areas of the world that are most plagued by lack of access to water are actually in areas of the most available water underground. Drilled and hand-dug wells can alleviate this. Read more about our mission and values to see our policy. Water Contamination: In some ways, the scarcity problem leads to the contamination problem, since people without access to well water are forced to drink surface water without having the means to properly purify it. This introduces an entirely new set of problems and complications. Biosand filters, water catchment and pump systems, UV purification systems, and many other new technologies can be implemented to clean surface water inexpensively. The right solution will depend on the local circumstances, but we plan to use all of them.
