This means families are vulnerable to deadly waterborne diseases, children miss school so they can spend the day collecting water from remote sources, and communities can’t grow the food they need. At Kingdom Workers, we’re working alongside local community members to create sustainable clean water solutions.
Our Water Storage & Sanitation Solutions program trains and works with local community members in rural Indonesia to build water storage tanks connected to springs and sanitation units that reduce instances of illness.
Our WASH program utilizes a “train the trainer” method. A team of South Sudanese refugees, trained in a variety of WASH topics and gospel outreach, works directly with their neighbors to improve basic health and living conditions while sharing the message of our ultimate Healer.
Over 3,300 people were served through our Clean Water ministry last year.
Despite pandemic lockdowns in 2020-2021, local community members were able to successfully construct 7 new toilet structures—entirely without guidance.
Since 2016, 29 toilet structures and 25 water storage tanks have been built.
Reza, pictured left in the yellow shirt, and his friends no longer have to spend hours collecting water from the river. Now they have time to attend school and can go to church. Now, they can experience childhood without having to worry about whether or not they have enough water.

Think about it for a minute.
On average in the United States, one person uses upwards of 80 gallons of water per day.* Water that can be accessed simply by walking to the sink. For most of us, we don't have to worry about gathering, collecting, or storing the water we need for each day of the year.
But for Reza and his family, water had to be collected by carrying as many plastic jugs as they could carry down a hill to the river, fill them, and make the trek back up the hill.
