Almost one-third of the world’s population lacks access to safe water.

This isn’t just an inconvenience; it’s a harsh reality and one that traps people in extreme poverty. But there is something we can do to end this crisis. The Global Water Center’s vision is to bring the number of people affected by the global water crisis from 2,200,000,000 to 0. Join us and help save lives with safe water.


The global water crisis is both urgent and enormous. Many organizations around the world are working hard to combat it, but it’s too big to tackle alone. The problem persists and people continue to die simply because there are not enough people doing the right thing, the right way, together. We have the resources and the technology to end the global water crisis, but to truly make an impact we need to work together with a universal strategy. This problem demands a collaborative, global response that engages and enables safe water organizations around the world, scaling their impact and rapidly increasing the number of sustainable safe water projects.

The Global Water Center is the platform that’s convening safe water organizations everywhere to foster collaboration, create consensus, and share resources to equip everyone in their efforts to end the global water crisis once and for all.
