Safe Drinking Water

Safe Drinking Water Icon

Poverty and natural disasters have left millions of people with only muddy creeks and stagnant ponds from which to drink. Each year, contaminants and waterborne illness are claiming the lives of millions, especially young children.

Water Serve tackles this crisis by manufacturing industry-leading water filters in India (to international quality standard ISO 9001-2008), and then working one-on-one with community and church leaders to provide safe drinking water to those in need.

Sanitation Icon

THE TUBE TOILET was created to provide disaster and poverty-stricken communities with a practical solution for human waste disposal.

A single installation of this revolutionary composting septic system can safely contain waste from as many as 5 families for 10 years. Its patented design installs directly under the latrine floor, accomplishing the work of a standard USA septic system. And like our water filters, we’re sourcing the components from India and Nepal to support the local economies while keeping costs down.

Truth lifts the heart like water refreshes thirst.

Our Work Section 4 Image

In poverty-stricken communities where formal jobs and education are scarce, micro entrepreneurs represent the majority of the small business sector.

Water Serve is working to create paths out of poverty for these would-be businessmen. One way we do that is by offering a high-capacity water purification system that entrepreneurs can use to build a business selling safe drinking water in their community, well below the going price of bottled water. Manufactured in India, our FILL STATION serves the dual purpose of providing a means for people to work their way out of poverty, while also making clean water available everywhere!

Where We Work

Where We Work Icon

Water Serve was founded by Geoff and Sherry Jordan who lived in South India in the early 1980s. Geoff (an industrial chemist) and Sherry (a Registered Nurse) were impacted by the widespread illness and death caused by polluted water, especially affecting young children. This prompted their filter development work which has not only created opportunities for local manufacturing and distribution, but also cooperation among community and business leaders in meeting practical needs – especially in response to natural disasters. In short, we know the land, we know the people, and we’re able to work more efficiently and effectively by focusing our attention in this region.

The need alone demands our full focus. Only 40% of India’s total population has access to improved sanitation, and only 46% in Nepal. (World Bank Data, 2015). Diarrhea kills 1.5 million Indian children under 5 years of age each year, and those who survive are weakened throughout life by frequent reoccurring diarrhea which makes them vulnerable to malnutrition and opportunistic infections such as pneumonia. (UNICEF WASH, 2014).

Water Serve is making a difference in India and Nepal, and is available to partner with organizations internationally. Join us in this life-changing mission! Give the gift of life by becoming a Water Serve Partner today.
