Making clean water a reality, one village at a time!
Welcome to the partnership!
Clean water means happy smiles!
Global Partners Running Waters, Inc. (GPRW) is a nonprofit organization, 501(c)(3), established to build relationships through collaboration on water, food, health & education projects in Latin America. Our roots lie in the mission experiences of Sister Jan Gregorcich (SSND), who lived and worked with the people of Guatemala & Honduras during a period of 12 years.
GPRW is building on Sister Jan’s mission work, by connecting friends in the US with those in Latin America. After initial relationships are established, working together on projects deepens a partnership. GPRW is a supported ministry of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, who are dedicated and passionate in their mission to serve the poor. Their mission greatly aligns with that of GPRW.

GPRW believes that building relationships with the people of Latin America can offer opportunities in which:
Share cultural and spiritual resources.
Improve health and living conditions.
Enhance international dialogue.
Experience the best of humanity.

VOLCANO RELIEF FUND FOR GUATEMALA
On Sunday, June 3, 2018, Central America's most active volcano erupted, causing more fatalities than any of those previously recorded at Fuego, near Antigua, Guatemala.
Many of the communities are densely populated, and the villages are right on the foothills of the volcano- many people did not have time to flee. More than 2 million people have been affected- hundreds of people are missing, at least 114 deaths have been confirmed with numbers rising every day, and many have been forced to flee their homes from the cloud of toxic volcanic ash. Entire villages have been wiped out. Large areas of communities remain covered in ash. The ash cloud rose 16,000 feet and has traveled as far as Joyabaj, about 3 hours drive and 72 km away from the eruption in Antigua. The land will be unusable for years to come. And threats of more eruptions are imminent.
