Safe Water Network

Safe Water Network's priority is to eliminate undue suffering from preventable water-related illnesses by developing new approaches and partnerships to improve safe water access for underserved families. Our community-based approach begins with listening to local needs and responding with safe water projects that integrate hygiene, training programs, ownership financing and locally appropriate purification systems. Safe water provision catalyzes economic and social transformation.

Programs

We implement Decentralized Safe Water Stations in rural communities in India and Ghana and Rainwater Harvesting in India. We also provide Technical Assistance to local NGOs interested in applying our solutions to safe water. Along with field implementation, we complete market assessments and health outcome studies to gain a better understanding of our impact on the ground. We also maintain a Network of international corporations, foundations and government agencies all interested in collaborative water initiatives and knowledge sharing.
