Introducing Water For People: A new partner organisation of SuSanA

We would like to welcome Water For People from the United States as a new SuSanA partner organisation!

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

Description:
Water For People is a non-profit international development organization that helps people in developing countries improve their quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and health and hygiene education programs. Our vision is a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation; a world where no one suffers or dies from a water- or sanitation-related disease.

We believe that water and sanitation services should be reliable and permanent, so that districts and eventually entire nations never again need a development organization to address these challenges.

We call this end state that we work towards Everyone Forever.

What is Everyone Forever ?

EVERYONE means Water For People works to ensure that access to water reaches everyone--the poorest, the disenfranchised, and the most isolated. Everyone--every family, every school, and every health clinic.

FOREVER means that the people where Water For People works--around the world in entire districts with many communities--can eventually operate, maintain, repair, replace, and extend their water and sanitation services themselves without the further assistance of Water For People.

Activities in Sustainable Sanitation:
We implement a programmatic approach called sanitation as a business.

Expectations in the Partnership:
We will contribute to the forum regularly and take a leadership role to share knowledge and information; we hope to use this to advance faster and better impacts for sustainable sanitation.

Contribution to SuSanA:
Share publications, share programmatic information, organize events, etc.
