IT STARTS WITH WATER
In 2003, Liberia emerged from a long and devastating civil war that took the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and displaced millions. The country suffered massive destruction and the very fabric of society was torn apart; infrastructures were in ruins – roads, buildings, health clinics, communications networks, schools, farms and factories were almost totally destroyed
With an 80% unemployment rate; extreme poverty with average earnings of $1 a day; no electricity; no running water or sewage system; and an inadequate education system, the country had enormous needs.

We pour a ton into our local (international based) teams in countries like Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Senegal, Rwanda, Malawi, and Sierra Leone. We teach, we lead, and then we step back to learn and grow. We stand by and support them through difficulties or challenges.
When you support The Euro Water Project, you support clean water and our in-country teams. This means you invest in a water project and in many African women and children
We believe in accountability and transparency to all the people we serve including our donors, our communities and our teams. That’s why we love sharing the awesome reports we receive from the field. They are an invitation to be part of the work and celebrations alongside us
