Water For People
In 1991, AWWA founded Water For People with a vision of a world where everyone has safe drinking water and no one dies from a water-related disease. WFP now works in 11 developing countries in Asia, Africa, Central America and South America.
“Water For People’s founders had a clear, simple and world-changing vision that all people should have access to safe water,” said David LaFrance, AWWA executive director. “AWWA is proud that 20 years ago we were there when Water For People started, and we continue our pride as a committed giving partner for the future.”

AWWA is an international, non-profit, scientific and educational association dedicated to improving drinking water for people everywhere.
