Project Overview


At Waves For Water we have always viewed ourselves as a bridge to the permanent solution. By reducing the impact that a lack of clean water has on a community, we can empower them to grow and develop in ways that wouldn’t be possible otherwise. Often, we aim to partner with organizations that can support comprehensive growth by launching additional initiatives to enable those communities in ways that our program doesn’t directly impact, such as education, economic, and social initiatives. In this way, our efforts are complementary and we can focus on what we are good at; providing clean water solutions and training that make a real difference for our global communities.

To build upon the Clean Water Corps’ impact in underserved and isolated communities, we have partnered with the Andre Reed Foundation to focus on the city of Desamparados, Costa Rica. Founded in 2010 the Andre Reed Foundation's mission is to assist underprivileged children in reaching their their full potential and become responsible contributors and leaders in their communities. With little to no access to clean water, and the majority of people relying on shallow personal wells, the people of Desamparados are the perfect candidates to demonstrate how the CWC program can impact the immediate health of a community while supporting long-term development goals and the growth of future leaders.

Of equal importance to this initiative is supporting another one of the CWC’s core missions; to provide Veterans with a new purpose. This partnership between the Andre Reed Foundation and the Clean Water Corps allows Andre to continue his support for service members through an organization that is providing a new purpose and mission to US Vets after their service is complete. Together we can empower underprivileged children and families through access to clean water to improve their health and allow them to focus on their growth and education. In turn, this will develop future leaders in communities where they are needed most, all around the world.

Join us in supporting the Veterans of the CWC and Andre Reed as we work to make an impact in the areas that need our help the most.
