Engineer or Builder

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN giving the gift of water?

Water is a key program driver for LearnToLive.  We are always on the lookout for people to help us in our mission to bring more water to more people in more countries around the world.

Do you have skills in building, design or engineering?  Do you want to be part of the super cool water team? See below to apply for an upcoming build!


The aim of the Water Program Builds are to establish an efficient and sustainable safe drinking water supply in the form of a functional, low-maintenance rainwater catchment and filtration system that is used and maintained by community members.

Being a part of the water team means you will live and breath the water team! You will house, build, eat and drink together for almost three weeks. Prior to departing you will be given an in-depth manual outlining the work to be done as well as scope.  The days consist of on-site building, filter media cleaning, plumbing, drinking lots of water so you don’t become dehydrated and immersing yourself in the life of the community.

Community partners and our leadership appoint a Water Team comprised of individuals who will be on the site daily during the build and who will be the primary caretakers of the Water System during its operation. Our Water Team typically consists of the following:

+Lead builder


+Project manager

**Community liaison


+Water engineer


*Construction worker
