COMMITTED TO ADDRESSING CLIMATE CHANGE WHILE CREATING SOCIAL, HEALTH AND ECONOMIC BENEFITS FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES... ONE VILLAGE AT A TIME
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 integrated, complementary and scalable approaches in seven program areas: Water Security, Clean Water, Building Better, Good Hygiene, Improved Sanitation, Safe Cooking and Sustainable Food. Working village by village, Friendly Water helps communities identify assets they already possess and build upon them. We don't go into communities telling them what we can do for them. Rather we encourage them to share their challenges and design solutions together. Friendly Water has developed a community engagement process which has been tested and evaluated, with an aim of creating long-term sustainable change and community resilience. Our processes and programs are replicable, scalable and sustainable. We invest in communities through training, start-up capital, and 24/7 support. Our aim is to unite people through shared learning, vision, outcomes, and impacts. The local community's talents, determination, and leadership drive the success of our programs. And no one gets left behind. What we build, we build together. That is the place where hope, action and love meet in an embrace.
