BENEFITING: Water For People
Water For People is an international nonprofit humanitarian organization dedicated to eradicating water poverty by supporting safe drinking water and sanitation programs in the developing world. We work in Africa, Asia, Central America, and South America.
Around the world, 884 million people do not have access to safe drinking water and 2.6 billion are without adequate sanitation facilities. Every day, nearly 6,000 people who share our planet die from water-related illnesses, and the vast majority are children.
Through creative water and sanitation investments, the organization fosters economic development and lasting social change that transforms lives and maximizes people's potential to meet their own challenges.
We believe everyone should expect to have safe water every day. And we want to help them in reaching that goal, for every family, every clinic and every school in the regions and districts where we work.
Water For People brings together local entrepreneurs, civil society, governments, and communities to establish creative, collaborative solutions that allow people to build and maintain their own reliable safe water systems. Empowering everyone transforms people’s lives by improving health and economic productivity to end the cycle of poverty.
