The SDWF is constantly challenged by a great need for financial support, we have very low administrative costs. Following is a summary of present projects awaiting funding. We invite you to request more detailed information and look forward to working with you. Individual memberships and/or donations will also go towards funding these projects.
Our school programs Operation Water Drop (OWD), Operation Water Pollution (OWP) and Operation Water Biology (OWB) are available on a cost recovery basis nationally, the elementary program of OWD is $70 and each High School Operation Water Drop kit, Operation Water Pollution kit or Operation Water Biology kit is $140. All other school programs are available free of charge from our website. We constantly have a list of teachers across the country requesting our programs and asking for sponsors to make them available. We welcome sponsorships of all sizes for kits to be sent to schools across the country, the individual/foundation/company that sponsors the kits can even specify what types of kits which are to be sent and where they are to be sent (by geographic location or by specific schools, see our homepage www.safewater.org for a map which shows the Canadian schools currently on the waiting list for sponsored kits), contact us (306-934-0389 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information! Operation Water Spirit (OWS), Operation Water Flow (OWF), Operation Water Health (OWH) and Operation Community Water Footprint (OCWF) are all educational programs that are available free of charge on our website. All of our school programs are endorsed by the Canadian Teachers' Federation as programs of Excellence in Environmental Education, and have been since 2002. The SDWF has received an award from the Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development for our Operation Water Biology program.
The AAWTT is a team of volunteer participants dedicated to the advancement of water treatment processes on Aboriginal reserves in Canada. Team members will help each other resolve water treatment problems by using advanced water treatment processes. The team is supported by one ground water laboratory located at George Gordon’s FN, Saskatchewan (almost completed), and one surface water laboratory (paid for by band funds) located at Saddle Lake Cree Nation, Alberta. At these two locations R&D into advanced water treatment processes is carried out on a daily basis. Both laboratories are integrated with the regular operation of advanced water treatment processes. Each plant will also become part of the bigger picture where improvements are being documented and shared with other participants.
The AAWTT and our community workshops advocate the Integrated Biological and Reverse Osmosis Membrane (IBROM) water treatment process or any other process which has equal effectiveness! The single most important aspect of producing safe drinking water is protection of source waters, and what one community discharges as wastewater becomes another community's source water. The IBROM system is unique in that:

www.safewater.org presently receives over 3,700 visitors each month! We have received minimal sponsorship to translate some of our school programs into French and Cree, we would greatly appreciate being able to make our entire website bilingual.
