2021 CAMPAIGN

In the heart of America, 30% of Navajo families lack essentials like sinks or toilets. DigDeep began its journey in Thoreau, NM, with one family's need and has since reached over 250 families across 9 towns in New Mexico. By 2018, their resolve had taken them to Navajo Mountain, UT, and Dilkon, AZ.

The unsettling truth? Navajo communities are 67 times more likely to live without basic water facilities, a stark contrast to the treaties signed over 150 years ago.

But DigDeep offers hope. As an Indigenous-led initiative, they are not just providing water; they're restoring dignity. Beyond off-grid Home Water Systems, they are forging pathways in advanced septic solutions, job creation, and community support through the Water is Life Fund.

Our campaign raised over $130,000 and brought complete hot and cold running water systems to homes on the Navajo Nation. Running water changes a life forever.

THE URGENT CRISIS:
AMERICA'S WATER GAP 

The Problem

While most people in the United States take running water completely for granted, millions of our neighbors struggle to get enough clean water to survive. The Navajo Nation is hit particularly hard since more than 30% still don’t have a tap or toilet at home. The number of people without water access is also increasing in Delaware, Idaho, Kansas, New Hampshire, Nevada, South Dakota, and Puerto Rico. ​ As the repercussions of COVID-19 continue to linger, the impact on families who do not have water is tragic. 

Solution

IN 24 HOURS...

The Solution

Within just 24 hours, Dig Deep can equip a Navajo family in rural New Mexico, Arizona, or Utah with clean, hot and cold running water. We engage homeowners in the installation process, empowering them with the skills needed to maintain, repair, and upgrade their water system for life.
