These are the People

With over thirty years of experience in nine countries, we've seen how access to water fuels health, hope, education, optimism, and prosperity. It boosts opportunities for everyone, especially women and girls. Children stay in school longer. Fewer people die of illnesses caused by contaminated water. Increased education and improved health bring economic prosperity to entire regions. Families have more time to work, play, and simply spend together.

Our work towards access to water, sanitation, and hygiene for Everyone Forever changes lives around the world. Meet the people leading and experiencing these changes by reading our stories of impact.
