Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon. We are here to bring safe water and sanitation to the world through access to small, affordable loans. There is both a need and demand for these loans, because when people have access to safe water, they get time back to go to school, earn an income and take care of their families. It changes their world.
For more than 25 years, with your help, we've been providing families with hope, health and the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty.
