Issues: Water

Location: 10409 Holaday Drive Carmel IN 46032 USA

Mission: Our mission is to serve God by providing safe, life-giving water to people in need. The vision of Fountains of Hope is to empower and equip the body of Christ to provide life-sustaining water for all of God’s children. We will expand this vision by continuing to build relationships with churches, other like-minded ministries and organizations.
Results: Fountains of Hope has installed over 50 water purifier systems in Haiti helping those most affected by the Jan. 2010 earthquake and cholera outbreaks. We installed 15 purifier systems in Kenya helping during the post-election violence, in HIV/AIDs orphanges and the IDP camps near the Somalian border. Two wells were installed in Haiti and five wells installed in Zimbabwe. We hosted our first health and hygiene conference this summer and will be training people in future events.
Target demographics: Our targeted demographics are helping widows and orphans and those afflicted by disasters around the world. We are primarily working in Haiti to help eliminate the cholera outbreaks that are still heavily impacting the country (in spite of it not being on the US news!)
Direct beneficiaries per year: We have had over 20 water purifier systems installed in Haiti this year and 5 systems installed in Kenya. Other organizations use our system and are installing them in other countries.
Geographic areas served: Haiti, Africa, India, South America, Central America, Asia.
Programs: FoH is committed to the installation, integration and teaching of safe water solutions for the poorest and most marginalized via water purification, well drilling and health and hygiene education.

Rating: 5 stars  

I was actively researching nonprofits in order to find a cause that I felt compelled to donate to when I first discovered Fountains of Hope. When I read about the work that Bill and FoH were accomplishing, it struck a chord. Like most of us who are fortunate enough to have clean water at our disposal, I can't imagine a life where consuming water can actually cause more harm than good. I love that the water purification systems are sustainable and provide for so many. To me, they are like a gift that keeps on giving.

I felt so inspired by the ministry that I sought Bill out and am happy to say that I've since joined the Fountains of Hope team, working in the office part-time to help where needed.

As both an outside donor and inside member, I can confidently say that Fountains of Hope International is a worthy ministry investing in a worthy cause.

The Retreat Campus in Quincy Indiana is honored to be associated with Fountains of Hope International, Inc. and Bill Farrar, the Founder & CEO. The vision and work of Fountains of Hope, to integrate and teach safe water solutions for the poorest and most marginalized people on earth, is saving peoples lives each and every day. Bill’s involvement and willingness to travel the globe to personally address the world water crisis is a reflection of his deep love of humanity, his commitment to God, and helping others. We highly recommend Fountains of Hope for recognition as a “Great non-profit” in 2012.

I have known about Bill and Fountains of Hope from the very beginning of the ministry. He has a passion for the people that he serves and is dedicated to the communities/churches in the most difficult situations.
