Project41 seeks to create income opportunities, improve food security, and provide access to clean water for poor rural households, health centers, schools, and prisons in the developing world.

We seek to partner with local non-profits to sell our systems at an affordable price, allowing owners to create profitable social enterprises. Our pumps and filters are constructed in-country, creating jobs for the local community, leading to long-term financial sustainability.

More about these men

Each of our partners have been a catalyst for Project41, allowing us to develop, to implement, and to ultimately bring change to communities of people across the globe.

Though Project41 was established through the innovation and inspiration of Andy Pierce, it continues because of partnerships, because of businesses, families, and individuals that have been so generous with their time and their finances, enabling us to impact the lives of some of the poorest in our world.

Isaiah 41: 17 - 18
"The afflicted and needy are seeking water, but there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst; I, the Lord, will answer them Myself, as the God of Israel I will not forsake them. “I will open rivers on the bare heights and springs in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land fountains of water."
