Our #6 nonprofit, Oxfam International is aimed to provide lasting solutions to the injustice of poverty. And addressing water problems is one of their strategies:
Oxfam helps negatively affected communities do the following:
Understand the root causes of the water problems they are facing and, if possible, protect themselves from dangers.
Network with other affected people so they can share coping strategies, join forces, and strengthen their abilities to bring about change.
Voice their concerns to governments, corporations, and individuals responsible for the development projects.
Educate key players about the negative impact the development projects are having on the local communities, and work together to find a solution that is safe and equitable for all.
