    Blood:Water is an international nonprofit that partners with African community-driven organizations to end health disparities caused by the HIV/AIDS and water crises. These two issues are inextricably linked, and Africa is disproportionately impacted by both. We find, vet, and partner with organizations in East and South Africa that are community-driven and community-led. We pair intentional organizational strengthening with flexible financial support.

    We'll know we've succeeded when partners have the essential systems and structures in place to help them increase their reach and deepen their impact. And ultimately, to share in the joy of ending the water & HIV/AIDS crises - with our partners and in this lifetime.
