The time is now
We believe water is the way to break the cycle of poverty, to protect and save lives, and to make bright futures possible. We’re here to bring water and sanitation to all. We want to make it safe, accessible, and cost-effective.
We will achieve our vision by continuing to unlock more funding than what is currently dedicated to help solve the global water crisis, removing the financial barriers that stand between people in need and access to safe water and sanitation at home. Our approach is unique and we are investing in a future that benefits every person on the planet.
Increasing financing for water and sanitation is imperative to making progress toward ending the global water crisis and creating a bright future for everyone everywhere. This is who we are. We give our everything every day to make this a reality.
Partnering for progress
Water.org seeks to do more, faster, and in partnership with others to make financing for water and sanitation affordable and accessible to those in need. We seek to spur system change at all levels – local, national, and global. Our approach expands the flow of capital into the sector, addressing the most significant barrier to achieving universal access to water and sanitation.
We increase access to financing by integrating partners, ideas, and approaches to ensure that, like the water solutions we make possible, affordable finance can flow down to those who need it most.
We’re accelerating progress and impact in these ways:
Contributing to Sustainable Development Goal 6
Mobilizing capital is critical to achieve our vision of safe water and sanitation for all and to accomplish Sustainable Development Goal 6 — the United Nations call for the world to ensure universal availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation.
Accelerating impact and changing lives
Our approach is efficient and scaling in impact. We designed it to be that way because we believe the time is now to bring everyone, everywhere access to safe water and sanitation. We are working to transform the lives of 60 million people with access to water and sanitation by 2022. By November 2020, we have reached more than 33 million people with access to safe water and sanitation through financing — proving we are serious about achieving our goal and making an impact.
Join us and together we can change millions of lives with water.Donate
