Commitment to Water.org

"Water.org’s market driven approach is a unique and sustainable solution to the global water and sanitation crisis. My belief in the model is strengthened every time I go into the field to meet those who have benefited through our work – seeing their happiness, pride, and restored dignity affirms that empowering people and communities to take control of their water and sanitation needs leads to an improved quality of life. I am proud to work with Water.org and to see dignity restored in the lives we reach."
