Introducing Water.org from USA: A new partner organisation of SuSanA




We would like to welcome Water.org from USA as a new SuSanA partner organisation!

The following text is taken from their application form and was written by the partner organisation themselves.

Description and Activities in Sustainable Sanitation:
For more than 25 years, Water.org has made it our mission to bring water and sanitation to the world. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, we pioneer market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis. Water.org works to facilitate universal access to water and sanitation through access to affordable financing, and it tackles this approach through multiple layers. At the grassroots level, we work with local financial partners to facilitate microloans for poor people to finance the toilet that they want or connect to a local water supply. At regional and national levels, we work with governments and the financial sector to ensure that institutional and/or policy barriers to financing for water and sanitation are removed. Finally, we engage at the global level to draw large-scale visibility to the need for innovative financing solutions to the water and sanitation crisis.
