Water.org has successfully demonstrated that the poor can move from being beneficiaries to customers. The organization underwrites the start-up costs microfinance institutions incur developing water and sanitation loan products, and provides expertise in how to structure the loans. Since its launch in 2003, more than one million people have gained access to safe water and sanitation through Water.org’s flagship WaterCredit initiative. Water is without any doubt 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. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org has been pioneering innovative, sustainable solutions to the global water crisis for 25 years, giving women hope, children health and communities a future. Help them! How exactly do you celebrate the world toilet day?
