A nonprofit international organization, Water.org has had a positive impact on millions of people in need around the world by empowering them with access to safe water and sanitation. The organization was founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, who pioneered market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis. Water.org began its mission to provide families health, hope and bright futures more than 30 years ago. Since its inception, the organization has transformed the lives of more than 45 million people globally.
The staggering truth is that about one in 10 people, approximately 771 million, lack access to safe water and about one in four people, approximately 1.7 billion, lack access to toilets. Northrop & Johnson is proud to support Water.org in their mission to change these statistics by empowering families through access to expert resources and affordable financing to ensure they have household water and toilets.
Water.org is dedicated to raising awareness about the global water crisis and actively works toward solving the problems caused by this crisis.
