We believe empowerment is the path to sustainable community development.
Founded in 2010, Friendly Water for the World trains and equips communities with sustainable village-scale technologies to safeguard and conserve essential resources. Together with the communities we serve, we provide sustainable, replicable and scalable approaches in seven program areas: Water Security, Clean Water, Building Better, Good Hygiene, Improved Sanitation, Safe Cooking and Sustainable Food.
Our projects support disinvested communities who are disproportionately impacted by the global climate crisis – those least likely to cause climate damage yet facing the most severe impacts.
We do this by mobilizing communities to become self-reliant, while investing in them through training, start-up capital, and 24/7 support. Friendly Water promotes self-organization of various groups, and provides providing capacity building support, income generation, skills training, and baseline funding.
What we build, we build together.
