#GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday November 28 is recognized as the International Day of Giving.

#IGAD-icon

It’s unthinkable that mothers have to choose between giving their children water that could make them sick, even kill them —or NO water at all.

Show your solidarity. Care to give a dam! 

Your gift will provide clean water to hundreds of people in need around the world. Every new family receiving this life-saving system is one less living the unthinkable – water that could kill.

A one-time donation of $50 provides 100 people with clean water for a decade. A small monthly recurring contribution of $20 provides clean water for 200+ people. 

Imagine your gratitude by next year with the many lives you’ll be saving and improving.

CLEAN WATER FOR ALL

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 to 100 people a day and can produce up to one million gallons. That’s water for 5-10 years if cared for properly. 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

We align ourselves with strategic partners in-country who identify areas of the highest and most immediate need. We are currently active in 12 countries. A distribution team is sent to provide usage and sustainability training to women in communities empowering them to adopt a sharing mentality around water, and 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.

ABOUT US

The Waterbearers is a movement started by three women, Spryte Loriano,  Jane Brinton, and Erin Toppenberg, who all share a passion for seeing everyone on the planet having access to clean water. The name was birthed one evening during a conversation with Spryte and Jane, 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!
