Located on the border of Niger and Kebbi states, Water Wins covers a 1600 sq. miles with a population of over 550,000. This region is known as the East Kambari Area (EKA) in Niger State. Approximately 70% still do not have access to clean water. Prior to receiving clean water, the infant mortality rate is reported to be 46% for children 5 and under. History shows that after having a well installed, communities see this rate improve to less than 10%.
Water Wins trains each community to manage and maintain all the wells. If a hand pump fails to function, Water Wins will repair the hand pump as part of the partnership. It is a priority that all wells and hand pumps provided by Water Wins are continually in full operation.
The water wells have opened doors for building relationships with communities. We seek to be a ministry that is built on Trust and Biblical Principles as we serve the EKA.
Our drill team completed 6 wells this year using a rotary rig and provided clean water to 2,700 people!
Water Wins also maintains the wells we drill along with others that people rely on.
Total Wells Drilled
Since 2005, Water Wins has drilled a total of 457 wells in the EKA.

Our Mission & Approach
The purpose of Water Wins is to leverage our God-given talents to improve the lives and living conditions of the local people in the Eastern Kambari Area (EKA) through water well drilling, Biblical teaching, and community development. The Water Wins team is comprised of Nigerian employees, Nigerian Board, and a volunteer North American mentor group and partnership with Partners Worldwide.
The North American team includes more than a dozen engineers and businesspeople that have a calling to live out their faith through business. Responsibilities include fundraising, mentoring and the Nigerian staff.
Since 2005, Water Wins continues to expand the programing to create healthy Christian communities that love and serve each other.

Water Wins currently sponsors a number of Nigerian Evangelists who are living with their families in the villages of the EKA. God’s grace is being revealed in this remote area of the world.
