This is Our Strategy
Where to Begin? With Sustainable Development Goal 6!
In 2015, members of the United Nations adopted a plan of action to help create a better world. At the center of this plan are 17 Sustainable Development Goals, all dedicated to forming a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet.
Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 is to "ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all." In other words, water and sanitation for Everyone Forever.
Water For People has an audacious plan to make this goal a reality for all.
Strategic Plan 2017-2021
We know our Everyone Forever model works, and we just spent the last five years increasing our impact – x20!
Through goals anchored in Proof, Global Leadership, and Scale, we expanded our impact and drew closer to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6.
We are proud to announce we reached 4.67 million people with safe, reliable water access – surpassing the original goal of 4 million! See below for more achievements from the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan.
0MPeople reached through replication of Everyone Forever in collaboration with others
0MPeople reached through market-based sanitation
Building on this amazing progress, Water For People now has an even bolder vision for the future: the passionate pursuit of sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene services for all. We call our new strategy to achieve this vision Destination 2030. Why 2030? It is the target year for United Nations member countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, ultimately creating a better world by eradicating poverty, ensuring equality, and protecting the environment.
The foundation for Destination 2030 is built on replicating and scaling our now-proven Everyone Forever impact model to reach people beyond the nine countries and 39 districts where we currently work.
By 2030, we aim to serve 20 million at the local level, to reach 200 million at the national level, and to influence change globally, thus closing the gap for the over 2 billion who still lack water. We will do this together with our strategic partner, IRC, and in collaboration with other like-minded organizations, to ultimately reach these ambitious goals.

Strategic Plan 2022-2024
In addition to the shared Destination 2030 Strategy with IRC, we are developing our own Strategic Plan 2022-2024, It includes 3-year strategic goals for Impact, Revenue, People, Transformation, and Operations, with annual priorities and targets for each.
This 3-year strategy will be complete by the end of 2021. Please check back soon for more details.
