current and future work

Our vision is to bring sustainable access to clean water around the world using our community water franchise model. We are currently focused on implementing this model in the rural Andes Mountains of Peru, in the region of Cusco.

We work directly with our local partners to connect with local leaders passionate about bringing clean water to their communities. Every project includes a community agreement, training, and regular follow-up to ensure accountability.

If you are connected to a community in need of clean water and would like to propose a project, please contact us here.

2018 projects

Last year, we took an important step toward the future of 33 Buckets. After spending 2017 establishing partnerships in Peru, we launched three community water franchises reaching over 2,000 people!

Past projects

In our beginnings as a class project at Arizona State University, we brought clean water to people on three continents! We enabled a girls’ high school in rural Bangladesh ensure good health for its students, helped entrepreneurs in the Dominican Republic give back to their community, and took our first steps into our current work in Peru!
