About

Out of the 6.7 billion people on earth, 2.4 billion lack access to basic sanitation and 663 million lack access to clean water. Every 20 seconds a child dies of a waterborne illness and 443 million school days are lost each year from water related illnesses. You can help fight the water crisis by joining us in the Dominican Republic!

When you sign up as a volunteer in the Dominican Republic, you will get to make the ceramic filters first-hand in the factory. We will teach you what materials go into the filter, show you how to mold them, fire them in the kiln, and then test them for purification. In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to get to know the families that do not have access to clean water and personally distribute water filters to their homes. We also follow-up with previous filter beneficiaries to hear how the filters have changed their lives. When giving the gift of clean water, life is instantly simplified and prioritized. It’s an incredible experience.
