Commitment to Water.org
I am very excited to be part of the Water.org team, which is dedicated to solving the world wide water crisis, and to work in Southeast Asia, the region I am originally from. I believe that Water.org's commitment to innovation will result in creating new solutions and models responding to each individual household’s needs.
WaterCredit's impact is remarkable that it not only gives people the opportunities to have access to safe water and sanitation, but it will also empower women and build community ownership. It is a real honor for me to utilize my skills and experience to help Water.org achieve the goal of ending the water crisis.
