Our mission is to empower volunteers to facilitate sustainable solutions in under resourced communities while fostering local cultures.

Water Brigade volunteers implement water systems to prevent communicable illnesses in communities through 7 day Water Brigades in Honduras or Ghana. Student volunteers can either join an existing Water Brigades chapter on their campus or create their own chapter and recruit other volunteers. Our in-country team members work with water technicians and community leaders to design large scale water systems for the entire community. Once the water system is designed, volunteers work side-by-side with community members to implement the water system and provide education and training to proliferate knowledge about proper water use, and proper sanitation and hygiene practices.
