There are ONE BILLION people – about one in eight people on Earth – who lack access to clean water. More than twice that many, 2.5 billion people, live without basic sanitation. This is a devastating issue that leads to rampant and totally preventable waterborne disease, taking the lives of 3.5 million every year and killing a child every 20 seconds.
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.
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.
