Past Missions

I Thirst International provides clean water in developing nations through filtration, wells, pump repair, rain collection tanks & spring boxes. We teach small business to literate and non literate individuals alike to alleviate poverty at a personal level. Over the past 7 years we have made a difference in 10 countries. Through emergency relief efforts, we have distributed thousands of portable water filters after the earthquake in Nepal & hurricanes in Haiti and the Philippines.
