Water Operations

This wash station at Iglesia Eben Ezer in Guatemala is where the children from the school and church wash dishes and brush their teeth. Agua Viva installed a new wash station here where clean purified water is delivered to the community and children for tooth brushing and drinking. Imagine the positive health impact such a simple project will provide to this community.

Agua Viva means “Living Water” in English. Our water purification systems and our health and hygiene education programs are the heart of our efforts.  As of July 2015, Agua Viva has installed five fully operational systems in Guatemala and three fully operational systems in Ecuador.  We have three new countries waiting for sight investigations; Peru, Honduras, and Tanzania, Africa.  The hardware for each system costs approximately $7,500 USD and the design provides for a very efficient, low-maintenance, and low-operating cost installation for the communities we serve.
In conjunction with Living Waters for the World, we covenant with each community to do a site visit, an installation, and two annual follow-up visits. Our success would not be possible without the grace of God and the faithful contributions from our constituent donors.
If you feel led to serve by volunteering or through your financial or prayerful gifts, we appreciate you more than you can ever imagine! Removing the weight of the financial burden for these trips allows us to focus on the quality of our program.  It also allows us to focus on preparations so that we can make these trips more fun and meaningful to our host communities and volunteers.
