Opportunity starts with safe water
Water.org has empowered 21 million people with access to safe water and sanitation through affordable financing.
There's a smart way to end the water crisis
Millions of people around the world could get access to safe water in their homes with the help of small, affordable loans.
That's where Water.org comes in. We are here to bring safe water and sanitation to the world through access to small, affordable loans. There is both a need and demand for these loans, because when people have access to safe water, they get time back to go to school, earn an income and take care of their family. It changes their world.
For more than 25 years, with your help, we've been providing families with hope, health and the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty.
Your donation is a powerful catalyst
One of the major barriers to safe water and sanitation is affordable financing. We address this barrier head-on through access to small, easily repayable loans. Every repaid loan creates a new opportunity for another family.
By supporting Water.org, you are part of a solution that reaches more people, faster. Together with our 113 partners around the world, we've helped mobilize more than $1.7 billion in capital to support small loans that bring access to safe water and sanitation to millions of people in need. That’s how every $1 we put into WaterCredit creates $57 worth of impact.
Birtukan and her husband live in Boditi, a town in southern Ethiopia. To earn an income, they rent out part of their home. With a small, affordable loan, they were able to install a water connection on their land, adding value to renters and changing their lives.
"Now that we have water at home, our children are in school. More things are possible. Our life is better."
Birtukan’s four children are now going to school and dreaming about the future. That’s the power of water.
