This rating was published 07/01/2021 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Splash is at the forefront of a growing movement to ensure that children in urban poverty have the resources they need to thrive and realize their full potential. We design child-focused water, sanitation, hygiene (WASH), and menstrual health solutions for governments in some of the world's biggest, low-resource cities.

Splash now serves over six hundred thousand kids in eight countries in Asia and Africa. In 2017, we achieved a ten-year milestone of reaching every orphanage in China with water filtration systems, serving 1,100 orphanages across the country, while benefiting 190,000 children and adults. In addition, Splash projects have benefited 70% of the school children in Kathmandu, Nepal. Now, we are on track to ensure WASH coverage at 100% of schools in Kolkata, India, and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, through our most ambitious initiative yet: Project WISE (WASH in Schools for Everyone).
