  • The Power of Water

    36,069 views 2 years ago
    The water and sanitation problem in the developing world is far too big for charity alone. At Water.org, we are driving the water sector for new solutions, new financing models, greater transparency, and real partnerships to create lasting change. Our vision: the day when everyone in the world can take a safe drink of water.

    Join us at http://water.org/, and subscribe to our channel above.

    Co-founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation.
