Help a Community Across the Globe
Enjoy the Benefits of Reliable Water
DO strives to create solutions that lead to lasting change. To ensure the best possible results, we design and produce our products with high-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.
Design Outreach (DO), headquartered in Columbus, OH, engineers life-sustaining appropriate technology solutions to help alleviate global poverty. DO has been working to help solve the world’s water crisis in developing countries by inventing LifePump. This new hand pump technology can reach year-round aquifers, last years between maintenance, and is monitored with a satellite-based remote sensor. The first permanent LifePump, installed in Malawi, has been providing safe water since 2013, transforming the community. DO serves around the world in Haiti, Malawi, Zambia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mali, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Zimbabwe, and Guatemala. DO desires to serve the millions of people in our world today whose basic needs are unmet. Tools such as LifePump help our implementing partners build trust with community members to share the Gospel. We love because Christ first loved us, and it is this love that motivates our work.
