Our Track Record

We have been leading groups to Our Little Roses Family Ministries(OLRFM) in San Pedro Sula, Honduras for 13 years. OLRFM is the only full-time orphanage for girls in Honduras. They care for 75 girls ranging in age from 2-22, rescuing them from abuse and abject poverty. We are planning our next trip in the winter of 2018.
We participated on a group trip to Tulear, in southwest Madagascar in 2010 where we held eyeglass clinics, medical clinics, a solar oven project, and we did a watershed assessment. Madagascar had been in a 3 year drought which devastated the local agriculture and the local economy.
We worked on water projects across the island of Haiti before and after the 2010 earthquake. We focused on drinking water projects in Verrettes and Bondeau where we drilled wells, repaired pumps and installed new drinking water systems. We tested public wells and educated the local population on sanitation and water contamination.
in 2012 we helped co-found and establish Water For Small Villages Inc, a 501(c)(3). We served on the board, lead water projects, raised funds, establish relationships with other non-profits and helped form the organization. In 2017 we set out to form the Tiny Village Water Co. to focus on the areas of Nepal, Cuba and the Philippines.
IN 2016 we worked with WFSV to expand their work into the country of Nepal. We completed a drinking water project in the village of Kabilash which lost access to clean water as a result of the 2015 earthquake. In 2017 we are preparing to return to the Nuwakot District of Nepal and work in the village of Aapchour. We will install a drinking water system and install weather monitors.
In 2017 we formed the volunteer organization, the Tiny Village Water Co. which focuses on drinking water in Nepal, Cuba and the Philippines. In the beginning we will work with non-profits, churches, temples, foundations and charities to raise funds and support for our projects. By 2018 we plan to form a 501(c)(3). 100% of all funds go directly to our projects which we fully dedicate ourselves to, one project at a time.

Latest News

We are currently working on a project in Aapchour, Nuwakot District, Nepal. We are installing an electric pump system to lift water 100 meters up to a water tank in the village of Aapchour. 400 people will be served by the system when it is completed. We will provide funding for a farming grant that will perpetually pay for the cost of the electricity. Estimated completion: June 12, 2017.
We are in the planning phase of our first project in Cuba, where we will help the community in Montanzas filter their drinking water. Communities in Cuba typically have a community water system but the water is not drinkable.

More Info

We research every possible solution and work closely with the local community to find a solution to their drinking water crisis. We select the most sustainable and appropriate scaled solution based on the availability of resources and the ability of the local community to assume ownership of the system. We get a written pledge from the community for their commitment of labor and support. We plan every detail and then we seek funding.

Three Step Process

We have a three step process. (1) We plan (2) We fund and then (3) We take action.

Planning

We listen to the needs of people in the most remote and forgotten locations and then we plan a sustainable solution.

We learn about the culture, history, geography, geology, climate, hydrology, economy and socio-political details to help us understand. We work closely with the local community to find a the most sustainable and appropriate scaled solution based on the availability of resources and the ability of the local community to assume ownership of the system. We get a written pledge from the community for their commitment of labor and support. We plan every detail and then we seek funding.

Funding

After we have a full understanding of the crisis and a plan, we seek funding and support for the project.

We hold events, parties, pop-up shops. We partner with other organizations who can fund projects. We partner with companies that can provide donated equipment and supplies. Our overhead cost is ZERO. All funds go towards the planned project. We don't operate an office, we have an all volunteer staff and we operate on a volunteer basis. When we have the funding we take action.

Taking Action

When all the planning is done and the funds have been raised we assemble our team and take decisive verifiable action.

We attempt to purchase as many supplies as possible locally. We enlist labor from the local community. We find housing in the local community and we immerse ourselves in the local community. We are there to help them with their project. We provide funding or expertise - if needed. We turnover ownership to the community for them to maintain and operate.
