The H2O Project was launched in 2001 by Steve and Brenda Koinis a few weeks after Brenda saw a video depicting the removal of a very long guinea worm from a young African boy's leg. The project's goal is to raise awareness of the global need for clean water, and to equip the newly aware with a simple tool for making a difference. (Give up your sodas. Save someone's life!)


The H2O Project does not provide water/drill wells directly, but asks all who participate to send their contributions directly to a water ministry of their choice. Brenda serves as the Project's executive director, while Steve serves in an advisory capacity. Although many volunteers have come alongside the project from time to time, much of the day-to-day work is done by Trisha Gunter, Assistant Director, and Rachael Howell, Marketing Coordinator. Steve, Brenda, Rachael, and Trisha can all be reached by email.
