Monica Gyulai's Fundraiser:

Water For People NYC 2017

THE STORY:

Natalie and I decided that going to New York to participate in the marathon should benefit others too, so we committed to raise $2500 for a great cause: Bringing clean water and proper sanitation to people in developing countries. 


When I was an anthropology student, my focus was on Third World development. By giving to Water for People, you are contributing to an organization that is a model for the very best kind of development: Long term solutions that are supported and informed by local people and their needs.


The Colorado-based non-profit establishes partnerships between local and national government institutions, nongovernment organizations, private enterprise, and entrepreneurs to enable local communities, districts, and municipalities to plan, build, finance, maintain, and operate their own safe water and sanitation services. They monitor and evaluate the programs for 10 years, and you can too—on their website.


Water is basic--and also complex. In communities where there is no safe water readily available, women and girls are tasked with walking long distances to bring this resource to their villages. On average, they spend fours hours a day collecting water for their families—instead of attending school, or participating in other activities. Safe water has social consequences too.


Thanks for helping to bring a resource we take for granted to communities in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, India, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru. And thanks for helping us meet our goal.


With love,


Monica and Natalie
