Water For People was born out of the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the largest nonprofit, scientific, and educational association dedicated to managing and treating water. Canadian water industry professionals established Water For People Canada as a partner entity in 1995 to support and promote the mission of Water For People in Canada among the public and the water community.

Water For People Canada takes pride in our focus on sustainability. All work is designed to encourage capacity-building and long-term sustainability by the communities themselves.

More about WATER FOR PEOPLE Global

Water For People is an international nonprofit based in Denver, Colorado. Our goal is to bring water, sanitation, and hygiene services to everyone, and to make sure those solutions last forever.

We are working toward this ambitious goal by partnering with local community members, businesses, and governments, helping them bring sustainable water and sanitation systems to their communities. Then we ensure they have the training and tools they need to maintain those systems for generations.

In addition to our headquarters in Denver and our partner organization in Canada, we have teams in nine countries: Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, India, Malawi, Rwanda, and Uganda.

We spend years, not days, in districts — working until every family, clinic, and school has safe, reliable water and sanitation services. For Everyone Forever.
