About Nonprofit

We bring clean and safe drinking water to rural and poor communities in developing countries, as contaminated water kills more people than all forms of violence, including war. We have funded over 51,000 water projects and impacted over 11 million people in 28 countries by providing long-lasting water and sanitation services and establishing Water Committees to ensure the water point's long-term survival and sustainability. 100% of our donations go directly to building water points and ensuring everyone in the world has access to clean and safe drinking water.

Mission Statement

To provide communities in developing countries with clean and safe drinking water to improve health, increase access to food, grow local economies and help kids spend more time in school.
