01 Feb 2019

Water is the defining issue of our age. That’s why the United Nations SDG Academy and SIWI have joined forces to create the open course Water: Addressing the Global Crisis, covering the latest water trends.

The course brings you some of the world’s leading experts and practitioners, including Water For People CEO Eleanor Allen.

  • Explore the linkages between water, environment and societal development.
  • Understand how water influences lives and livelihoods.
  • Learn how your actions contribute to a more water wise world.
  • Grow your global network and resource pool.

In module 9, Eleanor Allen presents a case study on Water For People’s efforts to reach Everyone Forever with water services in Rulindo, Rwanda.

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.
