January 1, 2016 marks the official roll out of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) , these 17 Global Goals seek to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change. Here at Water For People we are ready to be part of the solution.
Global Goal #6: Clean Water and Sanitation
Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
Our work to ensure that everyone has lasting access to safe water and sanitation aligns perfectly with SDG 6. From our commitment to monitoring and sustainable infrastructure, to our partnerships on the ground and in the WASH sector we are eager to see what the next 15 years bring.
Moving toward the 2016 Sustainable Development Goals, we have changed the way we monitor.

The last version of Internet Explorer was version 11. Now Microsoft is pushing 'Edge'. Older versions of IE aren't even supported by Microsoft anymore. This article is a bit dated, but is a quick read and helps to explain why you really should upgrade: Please Upgrade Your Browser. Essentially, dated browsers are a huge risk for the user.
Alternatively, if you don't feel like upgrading your browser, you can also use our full site on your phone.
Why Don't We Fix Our Site for X Browser?
Essentially, Water For People is a non-profit and we would rather spend money on our causes instead of the very significant amount of money that it would cost us to design and maintain a website that works for legacy, unsupported browsers.
