Co founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation.
Water.org traces its roots back to the founding of WaterPartners in 1990. In July 2009, WaterPartners merged with H20 Africa, resulting in the launch of Water.org. Water.org works with local partners to deliver innovative solutions for long term success. Its microfinance based Water Credit Initiative is pioneering sustainable giving in this sector.
