Commitment to Water.org
In Indonesia, millions of people still lack of access to water and better sanitation facilities in their homes. Many get water from rivers or springs a considerable distance from home or in some places water can be purchased, but at a very high price. Poor households in Indonesia have many obstacles—the largest being lack of access to financial capital. I have worked to facilitate gaining access to capital for the poor and micro-entrepreneurs for over ten years through BMT and other microfinance institutions. By joining Water.org, I can realize a dream of helping my community get safe water and sanitation for the poor in Indonesia.
