ABOUT WATER FOR PEOPLE CANADA

Water For People Canada has established committees throughout Canada mostly in conjunction with regional sections of the American Water Works Association (AWWA). The committees inform members of the water industry and the general public about the work of Water For People Canada, and through various means solicit funds to support the administrative and fieldwork.

Since its founding in 1995, Water For People Canada has sponsored more than 50 projects benefiting the most marginalized people, particularly women and children in Bolivia, Honduras, Guatemala, Malawi, and Vietnam. Today, Water For People Canda focuses its efforts around programs in Peru. 

Water For People Canada takes pride in teaching people how to address their own water issues. All project work is designed to encourage capacity-building and long-term sustainability by the communities themselves.
