Splash is a social justice organization committed to the poor, an international development agency disciplined around urban economies, a social enterprise dedicated to putting ourselves out of business, and a safe water company focused on children. Splash works with foreign governments & builds local businesses to create safe water projects, at scale, in resource poor cities. The puzzle pieces already exist. We simply need to reconfigure them to create a more efficient, effective and equitable product.
