The GBL Filter removes 99.999% of all bacteria, such as E.coli, salmonella, and cholera. It also removes 99.999% of all protozoan cysts, including Giardia, cryptosporidium and other protozoa.


In other words, the filter makes water clean and safe. is designed to receive requests through either the local church or through other mission organizations. The request, or the dream, can range from a single GBL Water Filter to thousands, one to several wells or one to hundreds of structures within a region or a country.  The organization has been created to not only receive requests but also seek opportunities.



The Team assesses potential projects. Each project is determined by local leadership potential and project logistics (costs, safety, accessibility, etc.) but most importantly is evaluated by potential overall long-term impact the project will have in the community.


The field team will arrive to begin to empower and train local leadership to they can being to implement the plan and strategy. field  staff can also build structures that are located in areas where accessibility or safety could be an issue.


Once a project has been accepted, the team and its partners begin fundraising campaigns for the requested project,  mapping out the filter distribution strategy, plan for wells and prepare sites for construction.


Finally, the team works with local leadership and its partners to ensure that the project was completed with maximum impact in mind.  Then, the team works to move on from RELIEF, to SUSTAINABILITY to DEVELOPMENT.  Our strategy isn’t sporadic.  It’s intentional.  We will never move on from a community until has done all it can.

Obtain a clean bucket or plastic container.

Screw the connector, hose & filter onto the bucket.

Use the hole cutter to drill a hole 1.5 inches from the bottom of the bucket (you can do this by hand).

Fill the bucket with water from any source, lower the filter head below the water line, & let gravity do the rest.

The GBL Filter is one of most tangible and simplest ways to impact an entire community. Families can construct and adapt their filter in just minutes to locally found containers. The GBL Filter will serve up to 100 people every day and last nearly 10 years.  The kit includes everything you need to attach the filter to any plastic bucket or container and even a disposable bag. (Bucket not included.) For more information, contact us here.


The GBL Filter is one of the most tangible and simplest ways to impact an entire community. Families can construct and adapt their filter in just minutes to locally found containers. The GBL Filter will serve 100 people everyday and last 3 years, filtering thousands of gallons of water. By purchasing your own filters to take to those in need, or by donating to a filter project, you can help us help others get access to clean water.

Imagine what can be built on top of water… Churches. Schools. Medical Clinics. Businesses. Agriculture. We seek to fulfill requests for different structures because we know these buildings often create new dreams in the people we serve. Each project is carefully considered according to the need and overall impact on the community and the resources for long term leadership, maintenance and support.

While the GBL Filter is an incredible strategy to provide immediate relief to those without access to clean water, it isn’t a forever solution.
That’s why we look to drill wells that help provide a long term sustainable clean water solution to entire communities.

THE EXPEDITION is more than just a short term mission trip experience.  It is an opportunity to explore,  to discover, and to make a long-term genuine impact on local communities in the developing world. When you join us on an Expedition, you and your team will work directly alongside local partners and ministries to bring sustainable projects and solutions as we build stronger communities on top of water.
