Get Your Hands Dirty For Clean Water

 
IMG_7908 (1).JPG

Volunteers are the backbone of the work Wine To Water does around the world.

 

Connecting with communities around the world with the mission of clean water is an experience that crosses borders and divisions. Engaging with the culture of another country and building relationships while you build clean water solutions is something no one soon forgets.  While you learn about the Global Water Crisis, you will serve in community with local leaders and other volunteers.  We've made the process easy, but the first step is up to you. So get up, get out and join the community to end the Global Water Crisis #OnPurpose.

 

If you are interested in serving as an individual, please fill out the Volunteer Application. We will review your application and contact you with more information. If you are interested in serving as a group (ie. company, church, school etc.), have the group leader email us at volunteer@winetowater.org. Be sure to check out the Volunteer Guidebook for frequently asked questions here →.

Dominican Republic

This Caribbean hotspot has a secret that gets lost in the island beauty. While most think of the Dominican Republic as a vacation locale, not many realize that there is a very real need for clean water. When you travel to the DR, you and your group will stay at the Wine To Water ceramic water filter factory and have a direct hand in creating these life-saving filters. Then you will connect with the families that have benefited from having clean water in their homes and see the transformation first-hand.

Amazon

If you are ready for a true adventure, then the Amazon is the destination for you. Navigating the Amazon river by canoe and braving the jungle by land puts you in direct contact with the people that live with this mighty waterway. By day you may be digging wells or teaching hygiene classes, and by night you will sleep in hammocks. There is no better way to be truly immersed in the culture of another community.
