Mission:To provide clean, safe drinking water to the rural population of Mexico

We believe that clean, safe water should be available to everyone

Proyecto Agua Limpia Mexico is dedicated to raising awareness and the necessary funding to provide families in Mexico with a safe and simple means of having clean drinking water through the distribution of Sawyer Water Filters.

Mexico is the 11th largest country in the world by population and is comprised of approximately 121 million people. 22% or 26.5 million people, live in rural areas with very limited access to potable water. Clean water is imperative for healthy living. Food and waterborne diseases such as bacterial diarrhea and hepatitis A are listed as major infectious diseases plaguing Mexico today. Because of the lack of safe water in rural areas, people must purchase drinking water in plastic water bottles or through water purification plants that provide bottled water in 5 gallon containers. This is a costly option for families who can’t afford to buy bottled water on a regular basis.

For several years we have worked in partnership with Rotary International in Puerto Vallarta Mexico and individual Rotary Club members from the US to create water filter distribution programs in the rural areas surrounding Puerto Vallarta. Hurricane Patricia did not hit a major metropolitan area as predicted in October 2015, but did impact over 10,000 people living in rural areas along the coast in the mountain areas of Jalisco and Nayarit, Mexico. We managed to raise enough money through donations to distribute about 200 water filters. Many families in dire need received these filters, however, our work is far from complete. 2016 is well underway and our goal has been to get 10,000 water filters out there to the people who need them.

To bring about global change through working in partnership with people and organizations to provide solutions for better health, education and environmental ecology.


Sawyer’s revolutionary technology has also been implemented in projects by the United Nations, and is currently being used in more than 70 countries around the world.
