In 1991, the Water for Humanity (WFH) Committee was established within the American Society of Dowsers to provide funding for the development of dug or drilled wells and other aspects of water resources and recovery worldwide in areas of critical need.
The second purpose of WFH is to demonstrate the use and practical applications of dowsing, and to establish credibility of the dowser's theory of "live" water. The members of the WFH Committee judge and vote on each individual grant request. The size of the grant depends upon the particular situation and number of beneficiaries. In general, the grants are in the range of $500 to $5,000 (US). The general funds go directly toward actual well construction and pump installation.
It is expected that the beneficiary communities would provide local materials, security, transportation and unskilled labor, as well as some percentage of the overall construction costs. Community participation in construction must provide training of individuals in well and pump maintenance, as well as establish a pump repair fund in order to insure the sustainability of the project.
