We envision a world in which all people have safe water, proper sanitation and the knowledge to sustain it for future generations.
We are dedicated to improving the health of children, families and communities in the developing world by providing them with sustainable water solutions, sanitation and hygiene education.
Community. Education. Trust. Integration. Commitment.
Community. Community is truly the foundation of our organization.
- PWW was born from a community of caring individuals with a shared passion to bring clean water to rural communities.
- We involve the communities we serve in every step of the way. Ninety percent of our staff is in the field. Staff is often local, born near the communities they serve.
- There is no one-size-fits-all solution for community water problems. We bring solutions that match individual community needs and educate members living there, empowering them with the knowledge to have clean water for generations to come.
- We develop collaborative partnerships to bring the best possible solutions available, and we leverage our knowledge, sharing with other NGOs and governmental organizations.
Education. Education is at the heart of sustainable clean water solutions.
- We assess each community's level of interest and involvement prior to commencing a water program.
- Educating the entire community about good hygiene practices is a key step in the initial installation process. Additional technical training and follow up is provided.
- We develop WET Centers (Water and Expertise Training Centers) offering local organizations education in the causes of waterborne diseases, and how to prevent those diseases in simple, sustainable ways.
Trust. Our choices and decisions are made with integrity and compassion for all.
- We treat every individual and community with compassion and understanding, respecting their values, beliefs and lifestyles.
- We believe in being transparent with our finances and making fiscally responsible decisions for our donors, partners and the communities we serve.
Integration. We are big picture thinkers...providing comprehensive, sustainable clean water solutions, envisioning a healthier future for all.
Commitment. We envision living in a world where all people have safe water and proper sanitation.
- We are dedicated to developing clean water solutions that will improve the lives and health of community members across the globe.
- We are committed to providing community members with the skills and tools to acquire and maintain safe water programs and proper sanitation, empowering them with the knowledge to pass it along to all generations that follow.
There will be a day when future generations will not know the pain, suffering and struggle of waterborne illnesses.
