WATER BRIGADES

HONDURAS | NICARAGUA | GHANA

 

Volunteers work with local engineers and technicians to construct
water systems custom designed for rural communities. Volunteers assist
in digging trenches, connecting pipes, installing in-home water faucets,
and providing education to improve family health.

 

   

  

 

 

  

The water systems constructed by volunteers will
provide properly treated water for families to live
healthier, more productive lives.

   

 

 

Volunteers have the opportunity to assist in providing
training for communities to properly administer and
maintain their water systems.

     

 

 

Volunteers are challenged with problem-solving
throughout the construction process to address any
design issues that may arise.

   

 

 

Local experts train volunteers on proper use of tools
and safety procedures to construct water systems. No
building experience needed.

     
 

The Water Program works with community leaders to
establish a water council and economically sustain the
future maintenance of the system.

     
 

Volunteers engage in evening discussions and educational workshops.

JOIN OR LEAD A WATER BRIGADE

Water Brigades can be organized through University Water Chapters (15+ volunteers) or small groups (3-5 volunteers). All volunteers fundraise to support the construction, logistical costs of their brigade, and year-round maintenance. Brigade Leaders are assigned a Global Brigades Advisor to help them through the coordination process.
