Eleven years ago, after the UN stated that 1.1 billion people did not have access to clean water, Philip Wagner decided to take action, believing we could make a difference by providing clean water for drinking and sanitation needs, one community at a time. These efforts led to the founding of the nonprofit organization Generosity.org. The UN’s current estimate is that 663 million do not have access to clean water. Now, eleven years later, with the help of his son Jordan Wagner, his long time friend, Justin Beckett, the incredible supporters, and implementing partners, Generosity.org has funded 819 water projects, serving more than 470,000 people in 20 different countries.
This has been the mission for over a decade. This is an inspiring impact! But a great need still exists for millions of people who live without clean water, and we are committed see this crisis end, one community at a time.
The mission of Generosity.org, is to break the cycle of poverty, restore dignity, and inspire dreams. That is why we are focusing, not only on clean water, but seven other areas as well, for a more holistic and sustainable community development. The spirit of generosity is not only about being generous ourselves, but empowering and equipping the people we help, to become generous themselves.
We are expanding to encompass these key areas: water & sanitation, medical aid, education, family support, economic development, legal assistance, disaster relief, and mentorship through our Field of Dreams baseball project in Haiti. By focusing on these strategic aspects of community development, we will be working to give clean water… and so much more.
HAVING ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER IS THE FIRST STEP TO BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY, YET 663 MILLION PEOPLE STILL LIVE WITHOUT IT.
