One Collective serves communities located in the huge mountains of the poorest country in Central Asia. It is home to a people group which is 98.6% Muslim. The needs in this region are incredibly significant as people suffer from both physical and spiritual poverty. The population also faces a number of economic and humanitarian challenges. In particular, people struggle from a lack of access to clean, safe water, especially in rural areas.
People in this region are drinking water out of canals and open rivers. One Collective has a unique opportunity to provide fresh drinking water by connecting these villages with fresh water springs. We partner with villagers who provide all the manual labor for these projects. Our workers help design and implement clean water drinking systems that equitably distribute clean water throughout the villages.
We also seek to promote economic growth through small business initiatives, improve healthcare through public health education, and encourage sustainability by teaching new gardening and agricultural methods.
In each of the villages where we work, we start Discovery Bible Studies in order to see people become disciples of Jesus where there are often no known believers. God is working through prayer, signs
