From Our Editors

Water.org understands the contradictory nature of one of the world's most abundant resources. On one hand, nearly 70% of Earth is covered with water, while on the other, the amount of clean, potable, fresh water is only 2.5% of that amount. In some places, water flows freely from taps, while in others, the closest water source is miles away. In these places, people have to walk to a public well, and carry home as much water as they can for cooking, drinking, and bathing, or they resort to using contaminated surface water. This is where Water.org steps in.

Co-founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, Water.org works to alleviate water scarcity through regular interventions in the most remote areas of the world. In Ethiopia, Ghana, Haiti, and Bangladesh, volunteers work with invested local partners to drill wells, deliver water to households, build spring-fed pump systems, and educate people on proper hygiene and disease prevention.
