Carlos Ani Executive Director, Philippines

Carlos leads a strong team who oversee the successful implementation of our programs and strategy in the Philippines. Since joining Water.org in 2015, he has cultivated partnerships with financial institutions, government and sector leaders, and implemented initiatives to mobilize capital for water and sanitation loans.

Carlos’ nearly 40-year career in the finance and water & sanitation sectors includes development work across many countries including Bangladesh, Papa New Guinea, India and Nepal. As a program coordinator for CARE International, he overhauled a struggling microfinance project by introducing best practices, training, and establishing new partners, which resulted in the program becoming one of the top performing microfinance projects in Asia.

“My career and life-long vision are driven by the convictions of my faith. They inspire me to serve people living in poverty, particularly to reach more families in need of safe water and sanitation.”
