Living Water International: Living Water International (LWI) is a faith-based, non-profit organization that helps communities in developing countries acquire clean, safe drinking water. Strawbridge currently partners with LWI in Central America by: (1) providing financial support, and (2) sending volunteer teams to drill water wells and provide hygiene instruction. A typical team includes up to 12 people — ideally with 8 drillers and 4 hygiene instructors. No previous experience is required to participate. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all LWI trips to Central America were suspended during 2020 and 2021. We will update this page when we receive information from LWI on when they will resume trips.
