Several factors have contributed to the success of Agua Viva International:
Our work is guided by our sincere belief that 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 (paraphrase John Wesley). Agua Viva believes that it is our moral responsibility to restore health through pure water along with promoting social justice. Our work has resulted in enumerable blessings during each of our projects.
Agua Viva work could not be realized without the “sweat equity” of our volunteers. Our volunteers give their vacation time and their hearts over to our mission work. With the confluence of a well-trained volunteer group along with identifying the needs of targeted communities, profound satisfaction is achieved, and hearts and minds are changed forever.
Our Water Team of over 50 of committed volunteers manage Agua Viva International without any US paid staff.
