Agua Yaku provides clean water to thousands of impoverished rural families and communities throughout Bolivia. We provide the tools and training that will allow them to inexpensively manage and maintain their own clean water sources. We do this through low-cost appropriate technology solutions, drilling water wells, installing hand pumps, and distributing water filters. Clean water improves family health and productivity, and ensures a brighter future for our next generation.
Agua Yaku is a faith driven clean water ministry of the EFCCM (Evangelical Free Church of Canada Mission) in Bolivia, partnering with the Evangelical Free Church of America. The director of Agua Yaku, Daniel Beams (and Vanessa) are members of Crossroads Church in Lexington, KY, and have been missionaries in Bolivia for fourteen years. Agua Yaku is completely funded by donations from individuals, churches, and businesses. Since 2008 Agua Yaku has drilled over 500 wells, providing a clean, reliable source of water to nine different people groups in hundreds of communities throughout Bolivia. As Christians, we share our faith and message of hope found in Jesus Christ through friendships and partnership with local missionaries and pastors.
