HALF OF THE WORLD'S HOSPITAL BEDS
are filled with people suffering from waterborne illness.
WE CAN CHANGE THIS THROUGH
WORLDSERVE: WORKING IN EAST AFRICA FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES
WorldServe brings clean and safe drinking water to East African communities in need to accelerate education, health, and opportunity. We partner with visionary people – from academia, business, and communities of faith – to facilitate sustainable water projects with incredible impact, especially for children and women. Today, more than 3,000,000 people receive clean water from projects funded and/or facilitated by Worldserve.
Dirty water kills more people each year than all forms of violence, including war. Clean water improves health, increases school attendance, and strengthens local economies.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Our primary strategy is drilling water well boreholes equipped with solar power and standardized components. We also work to retrofit and repair wells created by others, making them more sustainable.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We hope you will join us in bringing clean water – the foundation of life – to East Africa by providing a one-time or monthly tax-deductible contribution.
DIVERSE PARTNERS + SHARED GOALS = LIVES CHANGED
Working with leading academic institutions at home and abroad, we can more rapidly advance desperately needed innovations to humanitarian challenges. WorldServe’s practical, boots-on-the-ground experience provides our academic partners with the means to deploy research-based solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our time.
WorldServe was founded by business people who recognized both the great challengers and potential of East Africa and its people. We help businesses willing to apply both heart and head to community needs in East Africa. With relationships developed over two decades, we are uniquely able to help businesses “do good” and “do well.”
Individuals and congregations of all faiths work with WorldServe. Seeking to live their faith by creating positive change through the compassionate provision of clean water, religious organizations are among our strongest WorldServe partners. Water projects are provided for people of all faiths and in a multitude of countries in East Africa.
