Dynamic Water is an organization dedicated to providing access to clean, safe drinking water to communities in need through partnerships with other organizations working directly with those in need.
We realize that we will not be able to bring clean drinking water to all those in the world who need it, but we refuse to let that stop us from helping those that we can. While we cannot provide clean, safe water to everyone who needs it, we can provide it for a community… a group of families and friends… a group of people... people with real lives, real stories, and a real need.
Welcome to our journey. Come along and help us change some lives.
These are the organizations we partner with, who are working in-country, directly with the communities in need of clean water.
These are the places where we are working to bring access to clean, safe drinking water.
We are working to fund and organize the implentation of clean water projects across the globe.
These are the events that we host to provide funding for the projects we are working on to bring access to clean, safe drinking water....

This is a cross post from our Nicaraguan partners, SuNica, containing great news about our project in El Porvenir. The El Porvenir project was fully completed in July. August was the first month where water bills came due. The community responded wonderfully. Read more below...
Paying the bills in El Porvenir
The thing we all care about. Is our work and your dollars doing the thing we wanted it to do? That is the million dollar question. Stories like this give us a great insight to how we're doing and how El Porvenir is doing. August was the first billing day in El Porvenir. Each family had 10 days to pay their modest, but fair bill for their metered water usage of the new system. On August 10th, 96% of the community had paid their bill. The community bill collector/enforcer/maintenance employee gave the "notice-of-water-cut-off" on August 10th and by the 11th, 100% of the community had paid.
Praise God! As a staff, we've been thinking about the first billing cycle for over two years. This was a great start and almost as important as the completion of the project itself.

We received an update today from Su Nica, our partners working in Nicaragua, on the El Provenir water project we helped them fund last year. We've shared that with you below.
Remember last month when we told you about that perfect piece of land we found for the water system? Well, we're oh so close to securing it! El Porvenir's Water Committee (CAPS) is working alongside SuNica, their local government, and a neighboring land owner to gain clear title to the land where the borehole and water tower will sit.
So the short history behind this piece of land is that a wealthy farmer who owned much of the property around El Porvenir promised to give a portion (including the land we need) to one of his best workers, Mr. Juan (name changed for privacy). This land was eventually purchased by a larger El Salvadorean company. Mr. Juan's agreement with his former boss was never formalized in the local Register of Deeds or any of that good stuff, so it took us quite a while to find out who it actually belonged to. SuNica's very own Mario Moraga got to the bottom of it, and now all we have to do is get a contract drafted up, get all of the stakeholders in a room (easier said then done) and have a few key people sign this document. Mr. Juan will get clear title to the land he was promised many years ago. El Porvenir's CAPS will pay Mr. Juan for the portion of his land that shall be deeded to El Porvenir, and El Porvenir can move forward with the project. Everyone wins! Check out the SuBlog for the unabridged version of this story.
We are dedicated to changing lives through providing local access to clean water.
In 2008, Shannon founded Dynamic Water to address a root cause of extreme poverty, communities lacking local access to clean water. Since, Shannon has teamed up with countless others to provide life-changing water in communities around the world, all the while trying to balance his duties as husband to Kim, father to three kids, and his full-time job in software management.
