WATER IS LOVE
Water now allocates two projects a year to under-served communities both locally and internationally. We create access by providing high quality drinking water by donating our time, resources, and sustainable technologies to enhance the health and quality of life to communities who are in need.

WATERNOW'S CURRENT FUNDRAISING PROJECTS

CLEAN WATER INITIATIVE FOR DINÈ, WHEATFIELDS COMMUNITY

In 2017, WaterNow reunited with Little Big Medicine in Wheatfields, AZ, also known as the Diné or Navajo community, and learned about clean water access needs on their reservation.

The Diné community has an abundance of water rights and a rich history of reservoirs. However, there is limited running water to homes and the freshwater supply is contaminated. Drought – an effect of global warming – has caused lakes that were once a source of clean water to dry up.

IN 2019, WE ARE MAKING THIS PROJECT A REALITY.

Donate $44 to receive a one of a kind, WATERNOW handmade poster!

DONATE $44 TO RECEIVE A PRINT!

We are on our way to reaching our $10,000 goal for this project. Revenue from this fundraiser will be used to purchase water filters, pumps, a rainwater catchment, and supplies for the new watersystem.  In addition, we will employ Diné community members for the project build and purchase materials from local sources.

WaterNow will use funds to:

– Construct a submersible pump system from the existing water source

– Install UV purifying filter water system

– Install a new water station, piping, and increase plumbing to homes and community kitchen

– Collaborate with the local community to maintain the system

100% of your donations will directly support increased clean water to the Diné community – enhancing quality of LIFE on the reservation for over 1,000 people.

MEASURABLE OUTCOMES

– Increase number of homes with water access and increase available gallons

– Reduce waterborne contaminants and bacteria in drinking water

– Install rainwater catchment to maximize available resources

– Employ Diné community members to help construct the system

“We previously met with the President and leaders of Little Big Medicine Inc., Danny John and his wife Levina John. They are excited about the possibility of the system and say that it will greatly enhance well-being, health, and morale of the community.”

CLEAN WATER INITIATIVE FOR DINÈ, WHEATFIELDS COMMUNITY

In this Navajo (Diné) Nation community in Wheatfields Lake, Arizona, approximately 1000 people experience poor quality drinking water. There’s an abundance of water rights and a rich cultural history,yet a lack of water flow which has caused lake reservoirs to dry up. Contaminants have resulted in illnesses that have been reported in the community. Help us help this strong, beautiful community with clean drinking water!

Phase I Objectives

– Partnering with Little Big Medicine & Tap the Flow 24
for a new clean water system to provide running water and a water well to the community.
– WaterNow plans to travel as a team to Wheatfields Lake, AZ in 2018.
– Install Rainwater catchment system
– New water station, piping, and plumbing to homes.
– Educate the local community on sustaining and maintaining the system.

Measurable Outcomes

– Number of homes with water access due to our implemented solutions.
– Document the increase in water flow measured in gallons per minute (GPM).
– Record number of gallons of water consumed or used in each home.
– Utilize water testing kits to measure contaminants and bacteria in the water
– Collect feedback from community members based on water quality and health Document number of jobs created within the community via this project.

Our Solutions

With these donated funds, WaterNow will purchase rainwater catchment tanks, piping, water filters and materials. We will employ local labor and source local materials. We’ve met with President of Little Big Medicine Inc., Danny John and his wife Levina John on numerous occasions at their Sundance ceremony. They feel this project will greatly enhance well-being, health, and morale of the community for generations to come.

MAMA NA DADA OF KENYA

Water Everywhere but NO waterOne of every 3 people are suffer from the waters of Lake Victoria their main water source. It’s water are entirely polluted from industrial waste and carries a number of water-borne diseases that lead to illness and fatality.. WaterNow plans to bring 2 water filtration systems and install rainwater catchment in the village to provide easier access to water and access to clean, healthy water.Hygiene and SanitationWaterNow is also responding to their call for better sanitary and health conditions.Currently public defecation leads to water source contamination, fecal diseases, and unsanitary living conditions. WaterNow plans to bring compost toilets as well as custom toilets for the ill, weak, and elderly.

WaterNow is currently raising $15,000 for our project in the village of Kunya, Kenya. Be apart of the impact with a donation towards compost toilets, water systems, rainwater catchment and everything it takes to bring clean water and a better future to the village of Kunya

Women ARE the water system

All the water for cooking, washing, agriculture, and even for drinking is fetched and carried from Lake Victoria exclusively by women. To fill their 5-gallon buckets, they must wade through 50 feet of thick hyacinth growth, infested with snakes (some poisonous) and leeches. When full, the containers weigh 48 pounds and are carried on the women’s heads, sometimes for miles, to their homes.

The women cannot be empowered unless we solve the water problem. Having an accessible water supply will save the women hundreds of labor intensive hours, freeing them to pursue income generating activities. It will also serve the community at large, by greatly reducing typhoid and other water-borne diseases, presently very rampant in the village.

WATERNOW'S PAST FUNDRAISING PROJECTS

LAKE BACALAR, MEXICO

Conservation in areas where clean water is scare such as Kunya, is paramount. We share numerous techniques for water conservation, such as rainwater catchment, grey water recycling, irrigation methods, water saving faucets and mindful water and permaculture practices. Another example of our success came a few months back, in December of 2017, WaterNow responded to a call from the state of Quintana Roo Mexico, located on the eastern part of the Yucatán Peninsula not far from the city of Bacalar.

In 2015 Mexico’s environmental protection agency issued an “urgent” call for local authorities to stop sewage and waste discharge into the fresh water lake of Bacalar. In response to this crisis, WaterNow installed a 3-stage water purification system and UV filter system for bacteria and helped the health of the participants gathering at the lake.

On behalf of The Call of The Water-XV Vision Council Guardians of the Earth, I would like to recommend Karuna Warren and WaterNow as an organization that is truly committed to create a world with access to clean water for all. In their mission to bring sustainable drinking water to people with limited possibilities, as well as support proactive environmental advocates.

WaterNow donated and installed a water filter system that allowed more than 1600 participants from 27 countries and representatives of a dozen indigenous nations, to have potable water throughout the weeklong gathering in the pristine, yet imminently threatened, Caribbean lagoon. Karuna also gave an important presentation on water sustainability and technology. We are very grateful for the alliance forged with WaterNow and their participation in our gathering and community.

The water filter system they donated will be used in future events and showcased as an example of efficient, cost effective, and easily actionable steps to use and care for water more appropriately.

RHODOPE MOUNTAINS, BULGARIA

Karuna installing a UV Filter and 3-stage purification filter and solar pump at storage tank in Meadows in the Mountains Festival, ~Bulgaria June 2018

In June, 2018 WaterNow responded to a call from the organizers of The Meadows in the Mountains Conscious Art & Film Festival. This festival brings crowds of over 3,000 individuals annually and during the previous year’s festival numerous people fell ill due to bacteria and parasites coming from the water tanks. WaterNow triaged the situation and installed a UV water filter, and a 3-stage purification system along with rainwater catchment and solar pumps. The sustainable system was well received and saved in plastic consumption, hauling water, and not to mention the chemical free water that received many accolades and will prevent future outbreaks.

HUNI KUIN OF THE AMAZON

The children of the Huni Kuin (Kaxinawa) Village make a three day journey to collect and carry water back to their homes. They go without pure water access due to commercial mining and logging production upstream which taints the flowing river.
WaterNow raised $7k for the Huni Kuin tribe which went to state of the art water filter systems (restructuring and 7 stage purification) , water storage tanks, rainwater catchment, travel, tools to dig their well deeper, submersible pump and a water drinking station.

STANDING ROCK TRIBE OF NORTH DAKOTA

Plastic water bottles are the current sole source of hydration for the First Nations of North Dakota. The owner of Sacred Stone Land called WaterNow to create clean water systems on the and.
WaterNow raised $12,500 for Standing Rock which went to water filter units, transportation, and green energy systems such as wind turbine and mobile batteries for power and wifi boosts.

HEARTLAND VILLAGE OF GRASS VALLEY

Heartland is an emerging ecological village in Grass Valley, California. They called WaterNow to install and bring structured water to its land. WaterNow installed structured water units and UV light disinfection to bring activated pure water to the community. Their testimonial says it all – “The Water tastes so much better and is greatly enhanced in quality, thank you!”

GREEN SCHOOL OF BALI

WaterNow journeyed to Bali, Indonesia to present an educational water workshop at New Earth/ Ancient Futures festival with the Bali Water Protection Program (IDEP). We aligned with IDEP to provide support for their program of building rehabilitated wells to stop saltwater intrusion.

WaterNow also collaborated with the Green School, an internationally renowned holistic educational institute.WaterNow helped them to install a restructuring water unit for their kitchen Kulu farm, plus advised them on a sustainable PV solar and river turbine interface. The water system serves 450 children and teachers every year. We plan to return to Bali in the near future to resume these important initiatives.
