 Sister Larraine Lauter, O.S.U., executive director of Water with Blessings, gets water filters, the
size of an empty toilet paper roll, to those who need them, but she needs help to deliver more. 
Sister Larraine Lauter, of the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph, is the executive director and only full-time employee of Water with Blessings, a nonprofit organization that helps put water filters in the hands of mothers around the world.

"That's where the Water with Blessings model is different. The organization targets 'mothers and others,' those who play the role of mom. No matter where the organization sends filters, mother culture is always the same," Sister Lauter said. "Mothers share, and they don't say no to other people's kids."

"I always say God has put smart women everywhere," she said. "This is not gringo to the rescue. This is not that model. I am troubled by that model. And even if these women are barely literate they can still be amazing trainers."
