THE NAVAJO WATER PROJECT
Launched in 2014, the Navajo Water Project is an Indigenous-led organization that brings hot and cold running water to Navajo Nation homes without access to water or sewer lines. What began with a single family in Thoreau, NM — the Bensons — has grown to serve more than 250 families across 9 towns in New Mexico alone. In 2018, the Project opened new project offices in Navajo Mountain, UT and Dilkon, AZ to continue expanding their impact across the Navajo Nation.
Cactus Country chose this organization as their design features Monument Valley within Navajo Nation, and ⅓ of Navajo families are living without tap water or working toilets. Lauren & Mark believe in supporting their mission to bring clean water to those in need.
