Lucknow dirty and clean water


Friendly Water for the World is inspired by an engaged community. Supporters, donors, and partners regularly contribute not just their time, but also their thoughts, ideas, and feedback. They are interested in the progress we are making and the challenges we face along the way. We do our best to provide information for them through different platforms and in a variety of formats, from monthly Zoom Chats to social media and our newsletter. All of the big stories in our newsletter are hosted here so that our community and the general public can return to read them and share them with others.

On this page, you’ll discover the latest word on our programs, results, and organization. From Community Engagement to Rainwater Catchment Tanks in Zambia, we talk about every part of our work. We usually share at least a couple of updates a month here, organized in chronological order, while posting more frequent short updates on our Facebook page. If you have questions about a story, if there is a subject you’d like to know more about, or if you’re a partner looking to collaborate on content, please contact us.



Exchange visits, otherwise known as study tours, seek to improve visitors’ knowledge and practices and teach them how to integrate new skills into their work.
