These web pages introduce our non-profit organization, Waterlines, based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Since 1986 we have provided funding and technical support for over 700 drinking water projects in rural communities in 15 developing countries.
Waterlines focuses on basic water systems that use gravity-flow, rainwater collection, and spring protection to provide drinking water to communities that need it. Waterlines also has helped provide new latrines and hygiene education at certain schools.
In each location, we work closely with indigenous non-profit organizations and individuals skilled in drinking-water supply projects.
Each year Waterlines also makes site visits to more than 100 communities to check on previously-completed projects to determine whether water systems are working properly.
Waterlines is not involved in water projects in the United States. We currently have a backlog of overseas projects waiting to be funded, so we do not accept online requests.
Waterlines remains a volunteer organization, with all contributions going toward the projects themselves.
