Large-Scale Clean Water Projects
Set apart by the sustainability of our sites, each clean water project is carefully planned and drilled by our fleet of drilling rigs and support vehicles. Uniquely positioned to drill deep boreholes, we diligently research and serve areas that are experiencing the most devastating water scarcity in Africa. WorldServe’s approach is focused on the “long haul” – aiming our attention toward fulfilling the following criteria in a span of 10-16 months per project:
JerryCan is a fun-filled ministry tool designed to teach compassion and generosity to young world-changers! Written by top-notch kids pastors, this four week curriculum will teach elementary students to LIVE and GIVE big! Born from WorldServe’s mission to solve the world water crisis, JerryCan is partnering with kids’ ministry leaders to train children to become life-long givers! By filling a jerry-can-shaped coin bank with coins and bills, kids can help bring clean water to children in need in Africa.
WorldServe has long recognized that women and girls are disproportionately affected by water scarcity. When water is present, great things can happen, especially in the area of education for girls. When girls are finally able to attend school, we want to do everything possible to keep them going! A challenge with which many girls struggle is the ability to attend school during their menstrual cycle. Inadequate restroom facilities, a lack of hygiene products, and rampant taboos mean that girls in developing countries miss up to four days of school every month. As absences add up, girls may fall so far behind that they don’t return.
Kourts 4 Kids connects athletes in the United States with the mission in Africa by hosting regional outdoor sports tournaments packed with exciting competition, food-truck fare, live music, coaching clinics and player inspiration from professional athletes. In partnership with Malcolm Brogdon’s Hoops4Humanity, tournaments are designed to bring amateur athletes, coaches, professional athletes, and teams together to make a difference for children without access to safe places to play. The cost of a concrete multi-sport court in Africa is $25,000. Each regional tournament will be hosted to raise funds to build and maintain courts with two basketball hoops and two soccer nets. As we mobilize communities around the US, K4K tournaments will support development, health and safety for children in Tanzania and Kenya.
Navajo Nation Partnership
WorldServe International with a world-class coalition including Assist International, The Ohio State University, Suez Water, and Netafim is committed to meeting a tremendous need right here at home. The Navajo Nation, located in the Southwest region of the United States, is facing water challenges rivaling those in the developing world. Since the start of COVID, we have been developing and executing a comprehensive plan of action to address the need for clean water, sanitation, agriculture, and economic development in that area. Join us and others as we tackle this issue over the next five years. (2020 – 2025)
