We believe in children.

Water changes the lives of children. They have better health, improved nutrition, and can go to school instead of spending the day fetching water.

$50 provides life-changing clean water to children in need.

World Vision is the largest non-governmental provider of clean water in the world.

How World Vision Works

These water projects run in harmony with our other key areas of development: health, education, food, and economic development. This approach tackles the root causes of poverty, enabling children to experience fullness of life.

Drill Rigs

These trucks traverse great distances to drill up to hundreds of feet underground to tap into water aquifers.


Hand pumps in the middle of a community allow water to be generated without electricity.

Solar Pumps

These panels generate energy from the sun to pull water from pumps, up into storage tanks, and then allow gravity to feed water to various communities.


Pipelines transport water from access points and allow for water distribution across hundreds of miles.

Rain Catchments

Roofs and other kinds of catchments collect rainwater into a storage tank for treatment and distribution.

Water Kiosks

From catching rainwater to receiving water from pumps or pipelines, community members come and fill up jugs for a small cost.

Latrines & Handwashing

Sanitation and hygiene are promoted by community leaders and practiced with ventilated, improved latrines and handwashing stations.

Repair Mechanics

Local technicians and members of the water users association are elected to help maintain water projects for long-term sustainability.

Sponsor a Child

When you sponsor a child, you help provide them with things like access to clean water, nutritious food, basic medical care,
and the chance to go to school.  Sponsorship multiplies the impact of your fundraising through Team World Vision and
brings a distant cause closer to home through a personal relationship with your sponsored child.
