For years, water organizations have advertised their impact based on a number of projects installed. That's a fine metric of success...for one day in time. But, what matters to a family in Kenya is whether water is still flowing today.
Clean water doesn’t have a project completion date. Neither should your impact.
So, we count what counts. We're not satisfied to claim responsibility for completing 1,000 water projects over 10 years unless we are truly responsible for 1,000 projects today - which means knowing if they work. When we consider true impact, this is what counts.
When we report that your 2016 giving provides safe water to over 300,000 people - we know it does.
Because of your support, we’re able to say confidently - through real-time reporting - that more communities can rely on access to clean water than ever before. We are meeting the tangible daily needs of families, creating jobs, and strengthening schools all while respecting the communities we serve - together.
