• We believe in the power and autonomy of the people we serve. They already have the power, the smarts and the rights to safe water and sanitation. So we focus on removing barriers, increasing access and empowering people. This makes it possible for the people we serve to own and grow long term water and sanitation solutions.
• We have the experience and the passion to go the distance. We’ve been building solutions and making progress for 25 years. We constantly refresh our thinking, fine-tune our approach, engage the issue from every angle, and seek new and better ways to put water expertise to work.
• We think in terms of practical economic solutions. Charity alone will not solve a problem of this magnitude. So we seek sustainable financial solutions. Our WaterCredit initiative makes small loans available, easy to repay (99% of loans are repaid) and made to be paid forward while unlocking deeper reserves of capital, so more and more people can equip themselves with access to the water and sanitation solutions they need.
• We see an end to this problem. We created our New Ventures Fund to make sure we aren’t just making strides against the water crisis, but accelerating it into extinction.
Water.org believes water is the way. To break the cycle of poverty. To achieve global equality. To make a bright future possible for all. We are here to break down the barriers between people and access to safe water and sanitation
At Giving Through Jewelry, 10% of all sales are donated to a charity of the buyers choice. We realize that there are a lot of charities to choose from so we would like to highlight some of our favorites. June’s featured charity is Water.org. Check out our FACEBOOK page at the beginning of each month to see how much was donated.
Water is a fundamental human need, yet 660 million people worldwide lack access to safe water. 2.4 billion people worldwide lack access to a toilet. When it takes everyday hours to find and collect water, it’s hard to find time for commerce and community. It’s hard to get through a full day at school. It’s hard to prosper without safe water.
Water.org brings water and sanitation to the world. They want to make it safe, accessible and cost-effective because they believe that water is the way to empowering a better life that they can all share in, worldwide.
Water.org is an international nonprofit organization that has positively transformed more than four million lives around the world through access to safe water and sanitation. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, we have been pioneering innovative, sustainable solutions to the global water crisis for 25 years, giving women hope, children health and communities a future.
