We are redefining what is possible.

Every Water1st project includes household-level piped water for a sink, shower, and flush toilet.

Every project serves the entire community: homes, schools, health clinics, and community centers.

Every project is community-managed so that users can operate and maintain their systems in perpetuity.

Our approach is based in science and experience. Toilets and hand-washing are the most effective tools we have to prevent disease transmission, and these activities are made possible when water supplies are provided at the household-level.

Our approach creates generational impacts. Household water service saves significant time and energy, enabling girls to attain a higher level of education and women to engage in work that increases the family’s economic security.
