Water Activism: Organizations Making a Difference
by Christian Sarkar


It's World Water Day 2005 and what have you done?

For those of you who emailed HarvestH20.com asking us about them, here's a list you can use. We don't endorse any on of these organizations over the others. We do, however, endorse their goals!

CARE works with poor communities in more than 70 countries around the world to find lasting solutions to poverty. We look at the big picture of poverty, and go beyond the symptoms to confront underlying causes. With a broad range of programs based on empowerment, equity and sustainability, CARE seeks to tap human potential and leverage the power of individuals and communities to unleash a vast force for progress.

Global Water was founded in 1982 by former U.S. Ambassador John McDonald and Dr. Peter Bourne to help save the lives of people in developing countries that are lost due to unclean water. Dr. Bourne was the UN Assistant Secretary General in charge of the International Drinking Water and Sanitation Decade until 1980 when Ambassador McDonald was assigned as U.S. Coordinator for the United Nations Decade on Drinking Water and Sanitation. http://www.globalwater.org/

Global Green USA, the United States affiliate of Green Cross International, fosters a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure world through education, advocacy, partnerships, and programs focused on the safe elimination of weapons of mass destruction, stemming climate change, reducing resource use, and preventing conflicts over fresh water.

WaterAid is an international NGO dedicated exclusively to the provision of safe domestic water, sanitation and hygiene education to the world's poorest people. WaterAid works by helping local organizations set up low cost, sustainable projects using appropriate technology that can be managed by the community itself. WaterAid also seeks to influence the policies of other key organizations such as governments, to secure and protect the right of poor people to safe, affordable water and sanitation services. http://www.wateraid.org/

WaterPartners International is committed to providing clean drinking water to communities in developing countries. Working in partnership with donors and those in need of safe water, we have helped thousands of people develop accessible, sustainable, community-level water supplies.
We provide a mix of grants and credit to allow us to have the maximum possible impact with our donors' funds, while still meeting the needs of the world's poor. http://www.water.org/
