Gift of Water® is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing filtered and clean drinking water to the third world communities that it serves. Gift of Water®is a well-established water purification program that has been working for over 15 years, primarily in Haiti. Our experts have years of combined experience in water filtration and our purification system has been recognized by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

We have an established model for partnering with those rural communities in Haiti and we are continuously attracting new sponsors to help Haitian families. We frequently work in association with the Parish Twinning Program of the Americas (PTPA).

THE BUCKET SYSTEM SOLUTION
The Gift of Water treatment systems incorporate both a physical filtration step for particle removal and a chlorination step for disinfection. This dual approach leads to high quality treated water. The two-bucket system, uses a polypropylene string-wound filter in the top bucket, and a granulated activated carbon (GAC) filter in thebottom bucket.
This treatment system may not be a fit for all communities. For more information on all types of systems, visit giftofwater.org.
