Water For People is an international nongovernmental organization working to build a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation. We partner with people in the developing world to create permanent solutions to the water and sanitation poverty they face, extending sustainable services to every person in every district where we work. By systematically strengthening local institutions, we ensure the long-term sustainability of water and sanitation infrastructure, independent of further aid from outside charities. We call this approach Everyone Forever.
The video shown at left (scroll through to the end of the pictures) provides an excellent, succinct explanation of the Everyone Forever approach.
