Few things are more of a universal human need than Clean Water. There are a couple of different ways you could engage with island communities. We have simple water well drilling rigs. If you are physically fit and mechanically inclined you could train on how to drill shallow wells and then lead a team traveling from village to village punching holes in the ground and providing clean water. Or, where there is a water supply but it is contaminated you could train local believers how to install and maintain water filters. Quality of life can be dramatically changed by access to clean water.
