Our Water Manifesto
At SMITH & STARR, we know water is a life essential and want to champion water equality for all. Globally, 1.8 billion people do not have access to clean water and 2.4 billion are still without access to adequate sanitation programs. We also know that across the developing world, women and children carry the burden of providing water for their families, often spending more than 4 hours walking for water each day.
Water For People is an international nonprofit currently working across 9 countries to bring safe water and sanitation to 4 million people. Water For People believes in Everyone Forever, a high-impact model customized for each community. Water For People works to develop high-quality drinking water and sanitation services, accessible to all, and sustained through the involvement of the community, local governments and families to ensure long-term impact.
