The task of funding operations for a non-profit organization run totally by volunteers is a formidable task. Every hour we spend seeking another generous donation is an hour that we could be spending bringing clean water to a new community in an under developed country somewhere.

The need is great and the opportunities to serve continue to multiply exponentially as Agua Viva International expands our reach. The greatest thing about completing another installation is that we have two or three more that see what God has done for one community and they ask whether He can do the same for theirs. We find it hard to say no, so we say “We’ll try, and God will show us the way”

There are several ways that you can help us in our mission and one of the important ones is financially. As you read through this site and are impacted by what the few, insignificant hands of a few people can do to bring glory to God in the hearts and minds of persons who may not see many examples of His glory in their everyday lives; you may be led to assist our effort.
If the way you choose to assist is through your financial generosity, then the Give pages of our site explain the different ways that you can participate.

Our primary day-to-day need is through our Water Operations. You can also read about our Foundation which is kicking off in 2013 and will be a great influence on our reach in the future. Lastly, we have Not Water, where we identify specific needs in communities that are brought to us and we pray about it and elect to participate. If you want to know about one of these types of projects that has specific impact to a targeted goal, let us know.
More than anything, we thank you for your generous contribution of time to hear our story and discern how you might play a part in our continuing story!
