Water for People partners with communities in developing countries to create sustainable, locally-maintained drinking water solutions and supports market-driven sanitation solutions. It recently developed a new open-source monitoring and evaluation technology called FLOW (Field Level Operations Watch), which leverages Android technology and Google Earth software for tracking the status of water points at least 10 years after implementation.

Water.org brings safe water to those who are without it. It has driven innovations in the way clean-water projects are delivered and financed and developed demand-driven water and sanitation programs, using microfinance. These innovations now serve as a model — so much that Fast Company did a July 2011 cover story on the organization’s work, and actor Matt Damon has led a very high-profile role. Its WaterCredit has stimulated more than $5 million in capital from commercial banks to fund water and sanitation microloan portfolios.
