Commitment to Water.org

"While traditional philanthropy remains necessary to provide access to water and sanitation in certain parts of the world, Water.org’s determination to challenge the water crisis with innovative market-based solutions is hugely promising. The flexibility of different approaches has already allowed millions of people to take charge of their lives and gain access to water and sanitation for them and their families. But there is still much to do to make global access a reality, and I’m excited to be part of this effort."
