Our #2 nonprofit, Water for People, They have evidence based programming and long-term engagement with beneficiary populations. Read the following material about their opinions and actions:
Water For People helps people in developing countries improve quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs.
Around the world, 884 million people do not have access to safe drinking water and 2.6 billion are without adequate sanitation facilities. Every day, nearly 6,000 people who share our planet die from water-related illnesses, and the vast majority are children.
But the real failures are all the broken pumps, filled latrines, and solutions that aren’t. We want to change all that. The solution? Programs that last and examine entire districts and regions rather than purely households and villages. Create solutions that last, and not only do people benefit for a long period, but organizations don’t have to expend time and energy going back again and again to the same location.
Our vision is a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation, a world where no one suffers or dies from a water- or sanitation-related disease. That vision is within reach and we hope you’ll join us.

Most experts applaud Water for People’s commitment to sustainability, monitoring and evaluation. WFP have pushed the sector forward on sustainability and evidence over the long term, where many experts have described as lacking in the WASH sector. Many experts specifically mentioned the success of their FLOW project, which is a platform for monitoring ongoing operation of water systems throughout the developing world.
