Water For People Canada
Water For People–Canada is a charitable, nonprofit, international humanitarian organization dedicated to the development and delivery of clean, safe water and sanitation solutions in developing nations. It is the Canadian equivalent of the U.S.-based charity, Water For People. Canadian water industry professionals established Water for People–Canada 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 has established committees throughout Canada mostly in conjunction with regional sections of the American Water Works Association. The committees inform members of the water industry and the general public about the work of Water For People–Canada, and through various means solicit funds to support the administrative and fieldwork.
Since its founding in 1995, Water for People–Canada has sponsored more than 50 projects benefiting the most marginalized people, particularly women and children in Bolivia, Honduras, Guatemala, Malawi and Vietnam.
Water For People–Canada takes pride in teaching people how to address their own water issues. All project work is designed to encourage capacity-building and long-term sustainability by the communities themselves.
