“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other.”

Isaiah 45:22

Being followers of Christ comes with expectations so large that only God Himself can help us deliver upon them. By turning to God and relying on His grace, we’re transforming what it means to be a humanitarian organization.

Design Outreach (DO) is a Christian research and development organization that seeks to alleviate global poverty by creating innovative, life-sustaining solutions that help transform marginalized and low-income communities physically, economically, and spiritually. As a team of engineers with diverse experience and areas of expertise, DO focuses on innovative products that improve the lives of the most marginalized and vulnerable people living in developing countries. As followers of Jesus Christ, we desire to share and show God’s love by providing technologies that empower people to break the cycle of poverty.

Our Core Values

OurCore Values


We see a world of pain and suffering and believe that God has called us to do something about it. Design Outreach operates with the belief that all people are made in the image of God and should be valued and loved as our Creator values and loves us. As followers of Jesus Christ, we desire to share and show God’s love by providing technologies that empower people to break the cycle of poverty.


We strive to create innovative solutions that lead to lasting change. To ensure the best possible results, we design our products to meet the highest quality standards. Focusing on human-centered design, we spend time on the front end of the development process to fully understand community needs and refine our solutions to meet those needs.


We believe that each person has a unique set of God-given talents and resources that are intended for good. Our skilled volunteers, implementing partners, community members, and staff all working together is what truly makes our technologies a life-sustaining reality for communities around the world.


We believe that every person should have what they need to thrive. DO desires to serve the millions of people around the world whose basic needs are not being met. We love because Christ first loved us, and it is this love that motivates our work.

why we exist - the need

It is said that 90% of products cater to 10% of the world's population, leaving billions without necessities such as clean water, sanitation, and basic healthcare. We exist to bridge the gap and meet the critical needs of marginalized communities who are often forgotten.

The scale and immediacy of the needs we face are staggering. For instance, statistics show that more than one in three people worldwide lacks access to clean water, forcing women and children to make perilous journeys daily to fetch water that is often contaminated.

Our flagship product LifePump™ has made a significant impact on water poverty by providing a sustainable source of safe water in rural communities, and we continue to prioritize our work in this critical area. We are also actively engaged in a range of other initiatives that are just as urgent and pressing. These initiatives are particularly important because so few organizations are focused on finding solutions to these neglected areas of need.

It is imperative that our solutions are sustainable to achieve the desired impact. This is why we strive for excellence in everything we do, recognizing that our mission is not just about water, pumps, or innovative technologies that sustain life. Rather, it is about people—individuals created in the image of God.

Reliable Solutions
Reliable Solutions
are crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty.

We exist to meet the many needs of marginalized communities by developing and deploying sustainable technologies that empower people to thrive. Our flagship product, LifePump, is a perfect example of the power of humanitarian engineering. These reliable and robust hand pumps have been operating for many years, providing a reliable and sustainable source of clean water.

In contrast, studies have revealed that many hand pumps break down within just a few months of installation and typically take around 30 days to be repaired. During this period, the affected community is left without access to clean water. Men, women, and children are forced to spend their days searching for water, often resorting to contaminated sources. This, in turn, hinders other critical activities such as running businesses, farming, education, and maintaining good health, ultimately undermining long-term community development. LifePump is different, proving our commitment to sustainability and true lasting change.
