Water for Humans
Water for Humans is a nonprofit social venture enterprise working to bring sanitation and clean water to communities in need through partnerships with local communities, NGOs, social entrepreneurs, universities and governments. These partnerships ensure clean drinking water, create local jobs and protect local water assets.
Over 884 million people in the world do not have access to potable water and over 2.5 billion lack proper sanitation. Potable water shortages and contaminated water sources are some of the leading causes of illness and death worldwide, resulting in waterborne diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and parasite infections.
