Training

WaterStep trains people to use our life saving water and disinfectant technology. We train either in person at our headquarters or virtually through video conferencing. Our goal is to teach people from around the globe how to take care of their own water and sanitation needs.

Population(s) Served
Indigenous peoples
Families

WaterStep develops and manufactures all of our water and sanitation technologies. We have a research and development team that listens to our partners needs and attempts to reach those needs with effective, robust and inexpensive equipment.

Population(s) Served
Indigenous peoples

WaterStep works with anyone around the globe that expresses a need for safe water and sanitation. Once a need is identified, we supply our partners with WaterStep technology, train them on the equipment, help them to assess the community, perform pre and post household surveys, design their project and remain in communication with them until they get their desired results.

Population(s) Served

WaterStep collects gently used and donated shoes from around the country to help fund their safe water and sanitation projects. WaterStep sorts the donated shoes based on type of shoe, then once enough shoes are collected, WaterStep sells them to an exporter who then sells them to small businesses overseas. Most of these small businesses are where WaterStep has safe water and sanitation projects going on. This system helps to fund their safe water and sanitation projects, as well as helps the economies of developing communities around the world.
