Description

If the water crisis is to end, the story will be written by men and women who, once upon a time, unearthed the vision, resolve and drive to dig deeper.

Everyday, Water4 trained field partners punch holes in a continent most of us will never set foot on so the people in their communities might know the simple act of drinking a cup of clean water.

These heroes dig deeper because they believe what we believe… that God is working through the capacity, strength and greatness of ordinary people to eradicate the water crisis. As they dig deeper within themselves and the communities they serve, water scarcity is eliminated, leaving behind lasting peace, reconciliation and hope in its place.

That’s what dig deeper is all about. 

Deeper solutions. Deeper commitment. Deeper faith. 


Throughout the month of July, Water4 is embarking on an ambitious campaign to dig deeper in northern Uganda. The campaign goal is $50,000 and every donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000. Your support will empower our field partner in northern Uganda, Young Men Drillers, to dig deeper than ever before as they work to bring safe and living water to nearly 5,000 people!  

Gifts to the Dig Deeper campaign will fund the construction of FIVE water vending kiosks in and around Lacor (pronounced Luh-Cho), a community west of Gulu, Uganda. For a look at where the people of Lacor currently get their water, watch the video below from Bitek, the managing director of Young Men Drillers:

Throughout July, you’ll hear more about Young Men Drillers' journey with Water4 the last several years. You’ll hear how they’ve had to dig deeper, overcoming obstacles all along the way. How they've gone from novice to proficient, from proficient to excellent, and from excellent on to training others -- making generational impact on Water4 trained field partners in Kenya, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and numerous others. 

They’re where they are today because of a courageous resolve to DIG DEEPER.

Let’s help Young Men Drillers dig deep again so the people of Lacor can experience the transformative power of safe and living water. 

Will you join us?

About Water4

Water4 recruits and equips exceptional African men and women to end their water crisis in their lifetime. We do this by training and supporting local entrepreneurs in leadership, Bible-based financial stewardship, and community mobilization so they can start their own water well drilling businesses, become local engines of sustainable change, and share the love of Jesus in every community they serve.

Grace and peace.

Michael & Annaleise Mitchell

This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind... let it be something good.
