One million with clean water

HELP ONE MILLION GET ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER!

660 million people around the world do not have access to clean water, and over 6 million die each year from water-borne diseases. In February 2016 we launched a campaign to get One Million people clean water – And now it’s time to finish the job. Help us get one million people access to clean water by World Water Day (March 22).

CLEAN WATER FOR EVERYONE!

We work with world leaders and strategic partners who take a no-nonsense attitude toward making global change. We use the most advanced, hollow fibre membrane filters that are small, portable, easy-to-use, reliable, inexpensive, AND can last a decade without needing to be replaced.

$50 Filter = 1 Million Gallons of Clean Water

The Sawyer filters are certified for ABSOLUTE microns making it impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which causes Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through. No pumping, no chemicals, no waiting, no worries! Incredible fast-flow rate, simple to use. and each filter can be backwashed to extend its life.

Each filter provides clean water for up to 100 people. Just $50 provides the distribution of one .1 Micron Absolute Filter, Bucket Adapter, Bucket Hole Cutter, Filter Cleaner, Adapter Hose and Filter Hanger.

Distribution and Sustainability

Our partner Waves For Water  identifies areas of the highest and most immediate needs and are currently active in 38 countries worldwide. They send in a distribution team to provide usage and sustainability training to ensure communities adopt a sharing mentality around water, and are ready to take ownership of their own success! A filter is just the beginning. With proper usage, the filter becomes a clean water ally for years to come.

Our Vision is to see a world where women fill up first from their well-spring, the Source, then overflow their blessings to the world.

CREATE CHANGE

When we learn to respect and fall in love with WATER we stop taking it for granted. When we begin to savor water – both in our bodies and on the entire planet – we change our relationship to it and to each other.

WISDOM

COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS 

Wisdom keepers from spiritual traditions and indigenous cultures for thousands of years have foretold of a time when the planet will experience a re-awakening of consciousness.

about-us

ABOUT US

The Waterbearers is a movement started by two women, Spryte Loriano and Jane Brinton, who both share a passion for seeing everyone on the planet having access to clean water. It was birthed one evening during a conversation, when they both said “The Waterbearers” simultaneously, as if they had instantly been made stewards of women and water. Coincidently, the very next night, Spryte was nearing the end of a good read The Serpent of Light: The Rise of the Feminine: 2012 and Beyond and discovered that the Waitaha people of New Zealand, a Matriarchal culture dating back over 4000 years, were known as the original “Water Bearers.” The phrase jumped out at her as an omen, and there began a journey that would weave together the old, the new, and the magic of intentional service into this movement – #For the love of water! 

Spryte Loriano has been engaged in clean water programs around the world since 2008. She helped raise funds for 22 Rain Catcher units serving 5500 people in Kenya. She also helped provide thousands of water-filtration systems providing clean water for more than 30,000 people in 5 countries (Japan, Guatemala, Kenya, Liberia and Ecuador), and  has personally provided sustainability training for hundreds of individuals in each of these countries.
