Welcome to Safe Water Africa
Safe Water Africa is a 501(c)3, non- profit organization founded in 2011 with the mission and purpose to empower the local Christian church in Tanzania, Africa by providing safe clean purified water on church property to rural pastors, churches and their communities in Tanzania.
Safe water can transform an entire community from waterborne sickness and disease to one of focusing on faith, improving health, education, and opportunity-especially for women and children. It changes everything!
Our safe water ministry provides two significant blessings to the pastors, churches and communities in Tanzania. Access to safe clean drinking water is one of the biggest humanitarian problems in the world so by providing safe water, we (1) address the tremendous humanitarian need and (2) provide the local pastors with an outreach tool to invite the community to the church to share the safe clean water and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We like to call it “living water”.
Our administrative personnel are all volunteers and our Board members fund miscellaneous administrative expenses so 100% of your donated funds are used to complete the water purification installations in Tanzania.read more
WHY WATER PURIFICATION ?
Water is Life! In the Gospel, Jesus and his apostles refer to “living waters” and “springs of living waters” as a blessing God wishes to provide all people.
Access to safe drinking water is a huge issue worldwide for 1 in 10 people or almost 800 million people. Unsafe water and lack of sanitation kill over 30,000 people each month with children affected the most. We address this basic need and at the same time we provide the pastors with an outreach tool to bring the community to the church to share the safe water and also share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.read more View Our Purification Process
By Spring 2020, Safe Water Africa will have funded and installed thirty nine (39) water purification systems listed below in Tanzania for rural pastors on church property. These systems will provide clean safe drinking water for thousands of men, women and children at 39 different churches and communities in 10 different provinces(regions) of Tanzania where they also provide an invitation tool for pastors to share the “living water” and the Gospel with their communities. Illnesses and deaths have been reduced greatly and many have been introduced to the Gospel. Thousands of lives have been improved by this “living water”.
Six (6) more additional projects are in the planning phase for completion by the end of 2020 which will bring the total to 45 project installations on church property in Tanzania serving thousands of men, women and children.
