Paper For Water's primary mission is to bring water and the Word to the Thirsty one piece of paper at a time. The mission was born out of the desire that two little girls had to help other girls worldwide who do not get to go to school because they spend their days hauling water. Isabelle and Katherine also learned that a child dies every 20 seconds from unclean water and they wanted to make a change.
Keiki International Foundation is a 501c3 Foundation which is the parent organization of Paper For Water. Paper For Water's primary function is to raise money to fund water wells worldwide.
