Complete and Lasting Solutions

We invest in high-quality systems and empower people to independently own and operate them.

We believe marginalized people are their own best resource in escaping poverty. We listen, involve community members in each step of the process, and fund solutions based on their priorities.

Water is piped directly to every home, school, health clinic, and community center, assuring each household receives the maximum health benefits of clean water, a toilet, and a shower. Piped water to the home ends the walk for water for women and girls. With the constant burden of water fetching and illness lifted, women can earn an income, families begin to save money, and girls can go to school.

All Water1st projects integrate piped water, toilets, and hygiene education. Studies have consistently shown that together — water, toilets, and hygiene — stop the spread of disease and save lives. When water is piped directly to the home and school, it allows for high-quality toilets and showers. Water faucets are placed in bathroom stalls for flushing, cleaning, and washing hands.

We routinely visit our projects to evaluate and improve our work. Rigorous oversight ensures each project is generating the best possible outcomes. You can be confident your donation is wisely spent and making a real difference in the lives of the people we serve. Considering the industry-wide project failure rate is 35-50% after five years, we know monitoring is a worthwhile investment.

The value of investing in local partners
March 30, 2021

We Empower Communities
We prepare communities to independently own and operate their projects. They receive extensive training to build, operate, and maintain their water projects in perpetuity. Community members are involved in every step of the process; they provide the volunteer labor to build the project and elect a local water committee to govern their system. The end result is a community managed project that lasts.
We Enable Female Leaders
Women serve in key leadership roles in the governance and maintenance of their water and sanitation systems. Since women are traditionally responsible for water collection, they receive the greatest direct benefit from a water project. An important role as a water committee member or hygiene promoter enhances women’s skills, making them stronger, more respected community members.
We Provide Consistent Support
Each local office employs water, sanitation, and public health professionals who know best how to identify, design, and build appropriate technologies. They are experts in community organizing and empowerment. Consistent funding enables our partners to engage in long-term strategic planning, retain qualified staff, and maintain strong relationships with local community leaders. This approach also allows us to saturate a region with water and toilet projects.

Where we work

We are providing consistent funding to 4 country programs – in Central America, Asia and Africa. Three of our programs serve rural communities. In Bangladesh, our projects serve the urban poor. These countries were selected because of their need for water and toilets and strong local partner organizations.
