The purpose of the WULUW initiative is to support and promote gender/social inclusion by increasing the number of women leaders in urban water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).
WULUW’s mentors and mentees have the opportunity to build life-long nourishing relationships. WULUW will mobilize a generation of mentors to help build the pipeline of women in WASH leadership. We will help women overcome even personal fears, overcome gender barriers, provide resources and equipment for sustainable leadership, and teach skills to mentees so that they may one day become mentors. For this, role models/mentors are critical.
WULUW also includes women communicating with male leaders to navigate the politics of leadership. This helps shift the culture so that the male-oriented workspace becomes a place with balanced leadership/ organizational change approaches - from which both women and men benefit.

The core purpose of ROCKBlue is to improve the lives of the urban poor in the developing world by assisting water utilities tasked with supplying water and sanitation. ROCKBlue partners with the water and sanitation utilities that supply the basic amenities of water and sanitation to the urban poor. We empower our partner utilities by being a connector and service provider. The result of these partnerships are healthier cities that support the well-being of the local communities and economy thus improving lives.
ROCKBlue aims to solve the growing gap between reliable water supply and accelerating urban demand. We are a nonprofit that leverages a large network of highly experienced specialists. ROCKBlue focuses on strengthening the ability of water and sanitation utilities to provide these services to the poorest in cities and towns across the developing world.
ROCKBlue accomplishes this mission through respectful and mutually beneficial partnerships with both public utilities in the developing world and with the international donors and lenders supporting these utilities.
