They've empowered more than 10 million people with access to safe water and sanitation. They believe water is the way. To break the cycle of poverty. To protect and save lives. To make a bright future possible for all. Access to safe water can protect and save lives, just because it's there. Access to safe water has the power to turn time spent into time saved, when it's close and not hours away. Access to safe water can turn problems into potential: unlocking education, economic prosperity, and improved health.  Every human being deserves to define their own future, and water makes that possible. They've transformed more than ten million lives with access to safe water and sanitation, and together they can reach even more people. Founded on passion and experience For more than 25 years, they've made it their mission to bring water and sanitation to the world. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, they pioneer market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis. Their approach is proven and powerful Charity alone is not a long-term solution. They seek sustainable financial solutions that empower people with access to the water and sanitation solutions they need. That's why they created WaterCredit, bringing small, affordable loans and expert resources to make household water and sanitation solutions a reality. Empowering families around the world On three continents around the world they've seen how empowering people does more than create access to safe water; it gives women hope, children health, and communities a future.

For millions around the world, access to funds is the only thing that stands between them and safe water and sanitation in their home. Their solutions focus on breaking down this financial barrier and bringing hope and opportunity to those in need.
