What We Do

 

We raise funds to develop projects for sustainable drinking water systems, system operations training, sanitation, and health & hygiene education for rural Guatemalan communities. 

 

Our volunteers also assist with system design, construction and training.  The communities are active participants in all construction.  Community involvement and ownership are key aspects of a sustainable water system.

 

No contributions to WWW are used for our administration, salaries or engineering/design costs.  Donations are used to purchase materials, supplies and in-country professional services.

ABOUT US

Who We Are

 

Imagine spending 20% of your waking hours toiling for water.  Every day requires physical labor to bring water to your home for your family.  The resources that we have at our fingertips are scarce in communities not far from hereā€¦ Central America.

 

Wisconsin Water for the World (WWW) is a part of the Wisconsin Water Association.  We consist of water professionals, teachers, engineers, scientists and others who volunteer to bring potable drinking water to communities in need.
