Our Mission

To create a better quality of life by bringing water to those in need, one well at a time.

Zam Zam Water is a 501(c)3 humanitarian organization devoted to playing a vital role in eradicating poverty by providing clean, sustainable water to villages across the globe.

What makes Zam Zam different

100% Volunteer-Based

Every $1 contributed to Zam Zam Water goes towards our water projects and the preservation of our organization. Everyone on staff or affiliate of Zam Zam Water is a volunteer and receives no type of monetary compensation. We all selflessly share the same passion and dedication to fulfill our dream of serving those less fortunate by donating our most valuable asset: time.

Water Committee with equal representation

We require each and every village that we serve to agree upon our terms to allow an equal representation of men AND women on the water committee that oversees the projects’ maintenance and sustainability. Unfortunately in many countries, women feel voiceless due to men overshadowing and dominating decisions made on behalf of their families and communities. What we strive for is a better quality of life by creating positive social change and empowering not only men, but women as well.

Transparency

We will have updated multimedia i.e. pictures and videos, of the village and site of our project before, during, and after the project is completed. After each completed project, our volunteers will travel to the actual sites. We will involve ourselves within the villagers, meet and speak with them, eat amongst them, etc. We strive to assimilate ourselves within their culture with the goal of getting to know them better in order to empathize with them. We hope that our efforts carry a long-lasting impression of positivity and inspiration, as we find inspiration in others.

Those who support Zam Zam

I support Zam Zam Water because I believe that everyone should have access to clean water and that the people behind the organization will make sure that happens

The reason why I support Zam Zam Water is because of the fluidity of the organization. I actually see where my money goes, which makes me feel like I'm part of the process

Zam Zam Water is unique in its culture because it inspires the younger Afghan American generation to give back to their native roots in its simplest form

Helping people in need is something the Prophet (pbuh) was firm on doing. As part of his Ummah, our job is to do the same. Zam Zam Water is reaching out to those who really need our help and I'm a full supporter in this project

Uzma Saiyed

I support this organization because I've realized how important it is to have something as simple as clean water. Not everyone has the resources in which we have access to on a everyday basis. In fact, it's the people that we help that inspires me. Zam Zam Water gives me hope in humanity.
