THIS IS WATER FOR PEOPLE

Reaching Everyone Forever: At Water For People, 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, reliable water, sanitation, and hygiene services.

EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER

Whether it’s a drink from the tap, a toilet that works, or a place to wash our hands, having water is a basic necessity that many of us take for granted.

But in many parts of the world, women and children spend more than four hours walking for water each day, and more than 840,000 people die each year from diseases contracted from unsafe water.

At Water For People, everything we do comes from the belief that everyone should have access to clean water and sanitation services, forever.

BUILDING CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION SOLUTIONS

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.

LONG-TERM THINKING AND LASTING CHANGE

We’re a water charity that isn’t afraid to get our hands dirty. We have a realistic plan for achieving permanent change—a plan that involves working with communities, training local workers, building sustainable systems, and sharing what we’ve learned with the world.
