Commitment to Water.org
After so many years in the private corporate world, I am honored to join a dedicated team of professionals focused on the organization's value proposition of developing sustainable social impact programs that provide access to safe water and sanitation to impoverished areas of the world. Access to clean water and sanitation should be a right rather than a privilege for every human being. I applaud Water.org's efforts and accomplishments in that regard and look forward to contributing to its continued success.
