Agua Viva’s work is guided by our sincere belief that, paraphrasing John Wesley, we must do all we can, for as many people as we can, in as many places we can, for as long as we can. Agua Viva’s leadership team believes it is our moral responsibility to restore health through pure water, along with promoting social justice, to poor and isolated communities in need. During each of our water purification system installation projects, our work has resulted in enumerable blessings to the communities we serve and to our team.
Agua Viva’s work could not be realized without donors who contribute their time, talents and dollars or without the “sweat equity” of volunteers who participate in trips. More than 50 committed volunteers manage Agua Viva International, allowing us to operate without any paid U.S. staff.
