THIS IS WHAT WE BELIEVE

bar-logo

Water is precious, and so is human dignity. Our new logo reflects the incredible beauty and value of both.

Your right to water needs defending. DIGDEEP’s logo is also a shield. Our access and education projects ensure that all people have the clean water they need to live free, meaningful lives.

Human rights are collaborative; we can’t defend them on our own. The center represents the place where DIGDEEP’s volunteers, donors, partners and staff come together to change the way people think about water.

THIS IS WHO WE ARE

THE WATER COUNCIL

DIGDEEP field projects always establish local water councils: groups of 8-10 villagers who care for a new water source. Their input and decision-making ensure each project’s long term sustainability.

 

Here at home, our own Water Council has a similar function. The Water Council is an exclusive group of “venture philanthropists” – quarterly donors that believe so strongly in our life saving mission, that they’re happy to cover our operational costs.

Their support ensures that our innovative work and strong commitment to donors will continue for years to come. Want to request an invitation to the Water Council? Just email us: info@digdeep.org
