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.

2019 projects

After our last couple years working with Peru, we realized there were communities that are often overlooked due to their small size. This year, we partnered with 3 new communities and revisited some of our previous projects to ensure their prolonged success. You may remember the community of Huillcapata, which we partnered with back in 2016 to install a filtration system in their local elementary school. After revisiting our friends in Huillcapata this summer, we realized that clean water is the first step to everything else.

So no matter how small a community, this summer we wanted to work from the ground up and make sure each of these communities have the tools they need to grow. Read more about these communities by clicking on the pictures below.

None of these projects would have been possible without the help of our donors. You can continue the movement towards clean water by clicking the link below. If there’s anything we’ve learned in our years working alongside each of these communities, it’s that clean water is the first step.

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!
