To achieve true long-term sustainability, simply providing access to water is not enough; we believe in the combined power of providing access to safe water while inspiring behavioral change towards water and proper hygiene practices by creating a lasting understanding through social art. By touching an emotional chord within communities, you can truly impact people and help change unhealthy behaviors. These are the essential conditions needed to enable communities to break the cycle of poverty. Our award-winning approach builds on communities’ existing cultures and beliefs, using culture-centric art forms to ignite a spirit of involvement and ownership. This allows people to feel enabled, energized and empowered.
Millions of people around the world could get access to safe water in their homes with the help of small, affordable loans.
That’s where Water.org comes in. 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 family. It changes their world.

Our campaign for water challenges corporations like Nestlé and Veolia that are behind the global water crisis. We challenge the commodification of our most precious resource. And we demand our water remain in public hands and accessible to all people.
