charity water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing
nations.The organization was founded in 2006 and has helped fund 24,537 projects in 24 countries,
benefiting over 8.2 million people.
Founder Scott Harrison was a New York City club promoter for ten years. From 2004, Harrison
committed two years of his life to the poor and marginalized through volunteer service in Liberia with
Mercy Ships. He traced problems surrounding education, safety, and health back to a lack of clean water
and basic sanitation systems. Harrison began to tap his network in an attempt to get as many people as
possible to support his cause.
Why Charity Water?
Most of us have never really been thirsty. We’ve never had to leave our houses and walk five miles to
fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean. Yet there are 663 million people on
the planet who don’t have clean water.
That’s a huge number. In fact, it’s twice the number of people who live in the United States. 1 in 10
people in our world doesn’t have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we can’t imagine
going 12 hours without.
Think about 663 million. They are very real, and they need our help. They didn’t choose to be born into a
village where the only source of water is a polluted swamp. And we didn’t choose to be born in a country
where even the homeless have access to clean water and a toilet.
