    Water For People is an international NGO that exists to promote the development of high quality drinking water and sanitation services, accessible to all, and sustained by strong communities, businesses, and governments. Our work in nine countries has impacted 2.8 million people with access to safe water and sanitation, and we continue to work toward the end of the global water and sanitation crisis.

    For water and sanitation services to be reliable and sustainable, they require capacity and commitment from local institutions. Accordingly, Water For People's strategy focuses on building strong relationships between market, government, technical, and community forces, which together sustain water and sanitation for the long term. Our Everyone Forever model extends sustainable services to every family, clinic, and school in the regions where we work, while providing a model for greater replication and scale
