We have created a document on how the WAPI came to be. Click link above.
This picture depicts numerous villagers showing up to receive WAPIs during Bob Tait's initial outreach mission in Livingston, Zambia, 2010. When he visited Honduras in 2017, the outcome was the same. As volunteers were preparing to hand out WAPI's they experienced an overwhelming acceptance of gratitude knowing their lives would forever change. Bob believes it was an act of faith that they were so receptive to this new concept of safe water.
Why WAPIs for the World is Unique?
WAPI for the World is a non-profit 501(c)3 ministry assisting globally with safe and healthy water for survival. WAPI, an acronym for Water Pasteurization Indicator, is needed and used in developing countries and impoverished communities. We teach villagers how to use the WAPI for potable water in conjunction with sanitation and personal hygiene.

WAPI is a simple hand-made device that is easy to use, unbreakable, re-useable and therefore, has a long-life span. Because our vendors throughout the United States have endorsed us with their donations and support of this world-wide WAPI philanthropic ministry, the cost of the WAPI is only $2.00. However, we cannot succeed in this effort alone, it takes a community.
 
Why WAPIs stand out from other safe water products?
The WAPI is a polycarbonate tube that is sealed and contains a small quantity of wax which melts at temperatures of pasteurization. The WAPI is placed inside a water pot with the wax at the top of the small tube. A washer weights the WAPI immersed in the fluids. When the specialized wax melts, it will flow to the bottom of the WAPI indicating the water is pasteurized. The WAPI is removed from the hot pot, which permits the wax to solidify. Leave for a minimum of ½ hour before reuse. This allows the wax to cool down completely for accurate readings. Turn the WAPI over and pull the stainless-steel wire through to the opposite end for the next use.
 
A WAPI can save time and fuel!
Water heated to 154°F / 67.8°C for a short period of time is free from harmful microbes, including E. Coli, Rotavirus, Giardia, Hepatitis A an d more. Fruit juice, milk and other liquids are pasteurized at temperatures well below boiling, which is 212°F / 100°C.  Therefore, the WAPI is designed not to exceed the required safe water pasteurization level.
 
The WAPI is extremely useful for people who currently boil water to make it safe for drinking. The WAPI clearly indicates when a safe pasteurization temperature has been reached and will save much fuel which is being wasted by excessive heating, deforestation and urban air pollution. 
Welcome to our online newsletter community!  
WAPI's have been distributed to 30 countries around the world. Your donations and prayers have made this dream come to life. For those in need of safe water, we have three established WAPI production and distribution locations in Honduras, Happy Valley, OR and our central production center located in Vancouver, WA. Since Bob Tait started to make WAPIs, we have donated and distributed over 55,500 units around the world. We have dedicated individuals who volunteer their time assembling all WAPI's by hand. As our ministry grows that number is increasing, helping to clean the world’s water. WAPIs for the World has made a tremendous impact on the many villagers we have served as a whole.

The growth of WAPIs for the World is building rapidly. We invite you to be one of our partners. If you have any questions or are interested in making, receiving or donating WAPIs, don't hesitate to contact us. We can help bring WAPIs to your organization, have a workshop in your location, or facilitate a youth project to make WAPIs. We are open to ideas.
