This is What We Do

WE BUILD LASTING SOLUTIONS TO END THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS

We know that improved water, sanitation, and hygiene changes everything. That’s why we’re committed to making sure these services are sustainable for the long term, and not just for today. We partner with local leaders and communities to implement the solutions that are right for them, and then we provide the tools to make sure water, sanitation, and hygiene services last for generations to come.

EVERYONE

We spend years, not days, in communities. We work until every single person—even the hardest-to-reach, the most vulnerable, the marginalized—has access to safe and reliable water, sanitation, and hygiene services.

FOREVER

Forever means building from the ground up and top down—empowering local communities and governments to invest in the long-term water and sanitation solutions that are right for them.

WE BUILD COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTIONS

With your help, we can ensure every family, clinic, and school has lasting access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene services for generations to come.
