Agua Viva International is committed to providing Pure Water and Living Water
› In the developing world, 24,000 children under the age of five die every day from preventable causes like diarrhea… contracted from unclean water. That’s 8,760,000 children every year.
› In just one day, more than 200 million hours of women’s time is consumed for the most basic of human needs… collecting water for domestic use.
› 3.3 Million people die from water related illnesses each year.
› 5 to 20 Million people die from hunger and starvation each year, largely due to lack of clean drinking water.
Our mission is to enable and inspire the needy people of developing countries by partnering with their communities to implement water purification and distribution systems and by providing health and hygiene education, dental care, and by promoting gender empowerment.
While focusing on our mission, Agua Viva International intends to train and equip our partnering communities to install, maintain, and operate Living Waters for the World (LWftW) water purification systems. Typically, partnering communities have a strong supply of water but it is highly contaminated. Water supplies are almost always contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and suspended contamination.
Thank you to all of our friends and supporters who attended our celebration this past November.
