Water for Good provides access to clean water and works to make a lasting improvement in people’s lives in one of the world’s most neglected countries, the Central African Republic (CAR). Water is the first step out of extreme poverty, and for 10 years we have worked to meet this immediate need, using water as a tangible way to improve lives in villages across CAR. Our teams have drilled over 600 new wells. But new wells are just the beginning! Real transformation happens when the water keeps flowing, year after year, and communities can focus on becoming more prosperous. To keep the water flowing—for good—our teams provide regular well maintenance visits. Through these visits, we build relationships with communities and work with them to initiate projects in agriculture that will empower the community.
