THE STORY:

New York City Committee - Water For People wrote -

Water For People has been selected as a charity partner for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour for the third year running. Our riders will ride the 42-mile tour through NYC's five boroughs over bridges and down highways in a ride unlike any other you'll ever see. Water For People's ride will mirror what millions of people around the world do everyday--mount their bicycles and ride long distances to collect clean water for their families. Your donations go directly to Water For People to support programs--programs that grow out of their belief that Everyone should have improved water and sanitation Forever.

Water For People is an international nonprofit humanitarian organization dedicated to creating reliable safe drinking water resources, improved sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs in the developing world; it currently operates in 11 countries in Africa, Asia, Central America, and South America. The organization’s unique business-oriented approach works to establish 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. Water For People puts long-lasting solutions and 100% coverage of a region with safe water access for everyone at the forefront of its strategy. It fosters innovation solutions to water and sanitation problems that are adaptable worldwide, and through monitoring and evaluation of its program impact for at least 10 years post-implementation, Water For People ensures that its work is sustainable by local partners.

Way to go, James! After this, the only a step you'll need to become a REAL MAN is to shave your legs and wear cyclist spandex. Let's chat soon! 5 years ago
