Think Big. Dream Big. DO Big.

At Design Outreach, we desire to share the love of God by developing sustainable technologies that help alleviate global poverty. The poor of the world have big dreams—what they lack is access and opportunity. By developing and providing innovative solutions for partners combating global poverty, we can help unlock the doors that lead to long-term community development and self-sufficiency. Together, we can create lasting change—join us!

DONATE

The demand for humanitarian engineering solutions is growing. Governments, nonprofits, and corporations look for ways to reach underserved communities and markets. Design Outreach was born with the mission of developing humanitarian solutions for the world’s most pressing issues.

The majority of the world’s products are designed for the minority who live in developed countries. Instead, our products arise from collaboration with non-governmental organizations, missionaries, and other sources from developing countries. Each project is conducted with in-country partners who know and understand the community through long-term relationships.



Developing Solutions

The Need

More than 840 million people around the world live without access to clean water. This affects all aspects of life—including health, wealth, education, food security, and safety. Women and children in developing countries spend millions of hours each day collecting water for their families. This water is often contaminated, causing major harm to personal and community life. Millions of people are left in vulnerable, restricted positions, unable to pursue their own dreams because they don’t have access to life’s most basic need—safe and reliable water.

Many organizations and governments are fighting to bring clean water access to rural communities. Unfortunately, the pumps used to bring water can’t reach deep enough and often break under the strain. 

Imagine a place in Africa where villagers have waited generations to receive a clean water source. Then, it happens. A well is dug, A pump is delivered. Water flows. Yet, in many cases, after a few short months, the pump breaks. The water stops.

This happens every day. But we’ve developed a solution. 

LifePump

Our flagship product, LifePump, is a solution to the problem of broken hand pumps in rural communities across the globe. LifePump is a new and innovative hand pump—developed, engineered, laboratory-tested, and manufactured in the United States. LifePump reaches deeper and lasts longer than its competitors, enabling people to have access to reliable water at greater depths than previously possible.

To date, LifePumps have been installed in 7 countries, impacting thousands of lives, creating opportunities for further development, and inspiring organizations and individuals to get involved.

We invite YOU to join us in making a lasting impact.
