Water For People:
Everyone should expect to have safe water every day. Water For People brings together local entrepreneurs, civil society, governments, and communities to establish creative, collaborative solutions that allow people to build and maintain their own reliable safe water systems. Empowering everyone transforms people’s lives by improving health and economic productivity to end the cycle of poverty.
Nets for Life
Malaria is a deadly, tropical disease transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitos. Every minute a child dies from malaria in Africa. Yet just one net can save three lives. NetsforLife® works to instill a “net culture” – a community-wide understanding of the protective value of nets and the right way to use them. When a net culture is in place, people know how to prevent malaria, resulting in less sickness, fewer deaths and stronger communities.
