AWWA Water for People

April 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Dear AWWA members,

On behalf of Water For People, I want to express my thanks for your support of our mission to end the world’s water crisis. Your belief in Everyone Forever – a world where everyone has access to reliable, safe water and sanitation systems that last for generations – has not wavered since our founding by AWWA 31 years ago.

Through AWWA Committee events, personal donations, and sharing the Everyone Forever message, you raised more than $1.3 million in the past two years, an impressive accomplishment, especially during a global pandemic! Your on-going support has enabled us to reach 4.67 million people with access to reliable, clean water in the past five years.

Your commitment of support impacts so much more than just clean water today. For example, a school in San Rafael del Norte, Nicaragua, had run down and unsafe bathrooms. Water For People partnered with the school and local community to upgrade the bathrooms and install handwashing stations, then connected them to the community’s gravity-fed water system. However, our efforts did not end there. Trainings, partnership, and coordination with the district government and Ministry of Education ensure the resources and knowledge are in place to keep the water flowing and facilities maintained. At the school level, we partnered with parent-teacher associations for training on the operations, maintenance, and administration of the systems to ensure they are sustainable.

To learn more about our Everyone Forever model in action, I want to personally invite you to join us for a Water For People virtual Impact Tour to Nicaragua I will be hosting. We’ll be “traveling” to Nicaragua on April 27 and 28, 10-11:30 AM MT each day. On the Impact Tour, you’ll meet students along with teachers, government officials, community leaders and more. Please register to join us!

Thank you for your steadfast support of the past 31 years. Without you, our progress toward Everyone Forever – a world where water and sanitation lasts for every family, clinic, and school – would not be possible.
