Mission Statement

Global Water is based upon the belief that the lack of access to safe drinking water is the primary cause of hunger, disease and poverty throughout the world. Founded in 1982, Global Water is an international, non-profit humanitarian organization focused on providing safe water supplies, sanitation facilities and related health programs for rural villagers in developing countries. Our program is designed to create safe water supplies in rural villages to enable the rural poor to help themselves.

To achieve this goal, Global Water's strategy is to provide permanent solutions to a region's water needs by implementing sustainable and appropriate systems (to include state-of-the-art technology) to:

• Secure, purify, store and distribute new sources of water for domestic uses and agricultural purposes; • Drill new water wells to allow access to groundwater;

Description

Founded in 1982, Global Water is an international, non-profit humanitarian organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in the United States . We're focused on creating safe water supplies, sanitation facilities and related health programs for rural villagers in developing countries. We believe the lack of safe drinking and agricultural water and lack of access to sanitation facilities are the root causes of hunger, disease and poverty throughout the world. Our water projects have an immediate life-changing impact, particularly to women and children, who have the responsibility in rural areas of developing countries to gather water for the family every day of their lives. Successful Global Water projects utilize water and sanitation as a tool to create sustainable socioeconomic development in these poor rural communities.
