Charitable Outreach

OWEA and OAWWA selected Design Outreach to be our charitable partner for One Water 2021. Donations to Design Outreach by OWEA and OAWWA members and companies will go toward installing a LifePumpTM in Malawi - where rural communities often do not have a reliable source of clean water.

The One Water 2021 Goal is $15,000 which will fund the installation of a LifePump and LifePumpLink in Malawi.
