This means only 2.5% is available for the 6 billion people on the planet today.
Truth is-- we're the minority. Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to clean, safe, drinking water. That's one in six of us. Dirty water causes 80% of all sickness and disease and kills more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
LiquidWater.com has discovered a very simple solution that has nothing to do with magic pills or government programs. It begins with a willingness to Get Dirty.
LiquidWater.com was founded to bring together people willing to "Get Dirty"-- to roll-up their sleeves and bring safe, clean drinking water to the world's poorest. Most villages in developing nations like Ethiopia have a plentiful supply of freshwater just below the ground in natural aquifers, but no way to get at it. Here's where we-- and you-- come in.
With the help of exemplary organizations on the ground, we resource Clean Water wells in remote villages across Africa. Drilling a well costs an average of $5,000-- a pittance to us, but a life-changing gift to those who receive one. The average Clean Water Well provides safe, clean drinking water to a village of 400 for 20 years.
100% of all public donations go straight into the ground-- to bring the most basic element on earth to the world's poorest.
What difference can you make? A simple donation of $20 can give a person in Africa clean, safe drinking water for 20 years. When an individual or organization partners with LiquidWater.com, you can be certain that lives will be saved because of your partnership. We invite churches, colleges, corporations, and schools to get involved in the Clean Water Cause and offer creative campaigns to help envision your friends & family. Get dirty now.
A sample video with Tim Lucas showing the impact of one church bringing clean drinking water to Ethiopia. Our goal is to provide active feedback to our organizations of the impact their donations are having on the ground.
When you partner with LiquidWater.com to bring clean drinking water to the world's poorest, 100% of your donations go directly into the ground-- to fund Clean Water projects on the field.
How is this 100% model possible? Currently, Liquid Church in New Jersey is underwriting all start-up costs so organizations are empowered to engage their people with minimal complexity & maximum confidence in the integrity of the donation process.
When your Clean Water projects begin, you will literally be able to see the impact. Our partners on the ground prove every Clean Water Well built using photos, video, and GPS coordinates plotted in Google Earth.
