"If you had a hundred sheep and one of them strayed away and was lost in the wilderness, wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine others to go and search for the lost one until you found it?

And then you would joyfully carry it home on your shoulders. When you arrived you would call together your friends and neighbours to rejoice with you because your lost sheep was found"– Luke 15:1-7


Found is the local church partnership and ministry arm of Water for Africa.

We are passionate about working with the local church to see long lasting change for the communities who have received safe clean drinking water and heard the gospel.

We believe when a community has a strong local church, real transformation can take place.


FOUND was birthed out of realisation that the local pastors in our project region were feeling isolated, alone and facing challenges. Our heart is to work with them as we bring clean water to their community, to equip, encourage and help facilitate connection and unity across the body of Christ.

At each water well, we invite the local pastor or church leader to attend and pray. We are compelled by love to share the gospel. We see men, women and children respond to the love of God. The local church are the ones to walk alongside and disciple them, bringing them into fullness of their new identity.

We know that we only get a glimpse into the life of a village, and that the Pastors who live within these communities know the needs and people in greater depth and detail.

Together we share the same vision and desire to see the local people come into relationship with Jesus Christ and a revelation of his great love.

The local church is a place of safety, love, acceptance, transformation and family. Bringing hope and change to individuals over generations.

How do we do this?
  • Monthly Pastors prayer meeting
  • Yearly Pastors conference
  • Community outreach
  • Build relationships with local Pastors
  • Speak in the local church
  • Facilitate outreach crusades
  • Gift bibles and Christian resource
