Solving the world's water needs takes partnership; come share in the work to see communities changed forever!

Our Approach

WFL is hands-on— Most of our staff are actively involved in the projects in the field for significant periods of time during the year.
WFL is assistive— We work alongside those responsible for their community’s water needs to find solutions that will work for their unique situation.
WFL is long term — We build relationships, use technology and resources available to the community and train community members to maintain their safe water systems for future generations.
WFL is investment minded — We train the community to care for its own needs and to share what they have learned with neighboring communities.
WFL is local — We specialize in simple techniques at the household and small community level rather than large-scale centralized water systems that are difficult for local communities to resource and maintain.
WFL is holistic — We address the related issues of sanitation and hygiene so that the community can use its safe water in a healthy environment.
