After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Founder Andy Pierce volunteered on a short-term humanitarian trip which led to the long-term establishment of Project41. What originated as a single pump for an orphanage in Haiti has grown into a global effort, addressing the need for clean water and food security around the world.

At Project41, we seek to create income opportunities, improve food security, and provide access to clean water for poor rural households, health centers, and schools in the developing world. We do this by developing low tech, affordable, and appropriate technology solutions that work in remote developing world locations. We have established a partnership with The Sustainable Practices Lab at Washington State Penitentiary in the city of Walla Walla. The prisoners a part of SPL are passionate about the poor and have taken up our cause by building our SafeTap filters! This amazing relationship allows us to make our systems available to other non-profits or organizations interested in bringing clean water to the communities they are engaged in.

We are also working to partner with local non-profits in the developing world who will sell our systems at an affordable price, allowing owners to create profitable social enterprises. We are so grateful for our partnerships as well as all of the businesses, families, and individuals who have been so generous with their time and finances to continually enable us to impact the lives of some of the poorest in our world.
"As a teenager, I was hooked on cocaine after just one line. After that fateful night, I lived a roller coaster ride of drug addiction and trying to get my life together to live a "normal" life. Unfortunately, my addiction progressed and soon I began committing robberies in order to pay for my habit. This quickly led me in prison. Now I am serving a life sentence under the "Three Strikes You're Out" law. However, my life is full of hope and purpose. I have surrendered my life to Jesus Christ, and He has radically changed me from the inside out. He took away my addition and instead of my insatiable desire to constantly serve myself, He has given me a new heart to serve others. That's where Project41 and the Sustainable Practices Lab water department come into my life. Being able to manufacture the SafeTap water filter gives me a great sense of accomplishment and legacy. Instead of just taking from society, I am actually able to give back in a really big and meaningful way, and that changes everything for me." - Kieth Parkins, inmate with SPL

"In 35 years of working in Africa, I have tried every method imaginable in the quest for reliable safe water. Nothing even comes close to the P41 system. It is a Godsend. It is a timely technology that will make a tremendous difference in the quality of life for people in any context where safe water is an issue."
-David Arzouni, President, Wassa Mali Association

"After his first harvest, Moses realized he could use the Rainmaker to transport water needed to create bricks. This proved to be extremely lucrative. Moses used the Rainmaker to create 20,000 bricks, which he sold for 300 UGX each. After accounting for his expense, he turned a profit of $1374.80 from the bricks. Moses used his Rainmaker to create a business, increase income, and provide for his family!"
