WHY CLEAN WATER?
Clean water affects every area of life and 663 million people currently live without it. Access to clean water is what opens the doors for households to stay healthy, for children to go to school, and for men and women to build businesses that support their families.
How does Generosity.org select its implementing partners?
Generosity.org partners with organizations who have a local presence on the ground in the areas where we work. We choose partners who offer community training on proper sanitation & hygiene practices and empower local individuals to care for and maintain their clean water project. Our partners also offer maintenance and support to ensure these communities continue to have access to clean water for years to come.
What percentage of my donation goes directly toward programs?
When you donate to Generosity.org, 60% of your donation will go directly to programs, while 40% is used to fund operations and ensure that our programs are continuing to serve communities properly for years to come.
