While taking a Social Entrepreneurship class at Okanagan College in 2019, I was introduced to a not-for-profit organization called charity: water. This organization operates all over the globe with the goal of providing sustainable water projects to impoverished areas who have no access to clean water.
771 million people in the world live without clean water. To date, charity: water has funded 79,136 water project, over 29 countries, serving 13,203,945 people.
Every water project is GPS coordinated, so you can see exactly where the money raised is being utilized around the world. Private donors called “The Well” cover all of charity: water’s operating costs, so 100% of funds donated goes straight towards funding clean water projects.
