Community-Led Solutions

Our work makes transformational change across 4 key areas:

Safe Water

Water impacts all areas of life – education, health, income and overall well-being.


Proper sanitation facilities helps keep children in school.


Hand washing with water and soap saves lives.

Menstrual Health

Access to menstruation resources ensures that no woman or girl is limited by something as natural and normal as her period.

Why Us

Hand in hand with local communities, we’ve been impacting the global water crisis since 2008

  • Community Driven: People know what they need. We work with them to make it a reality.
  • Women Led, Women Centered: Women bear the heaviest burden of the water crisis, so we help them advocate for themselves.
  • Scaling Partnerships: We strengthen the capacity of our field partners so they can achieve their vision.

When Surge constructed the well for us, it made our lives easier! It gives me more time to look after my family and to work on the farm. Safe water makes us happy!

We used to drink unsafe water and not have a proper toilet. I’m so happy with our new biosand water filter and ecosan toilet. I know that our lives will improve – and that I can keep my family healthy. With the toilet, we can even get more food from our farm.

Water is a big issue here! We struggled with not having enough water to cook, clean, drink, or wash clothes. Many times we went to sleep thirsty. It made me worried because we need water for everything. The day we had water, it saved us. It is very useful, very, very, very useful, to have a cistern.

With our school borehole now rehabilitated and fully functional, our dreams can turn into reality. Moving forward, no more wasting lesson time in search of water at the lake. We shall now have ample time to catch up on what we missed at school.
