Water Collective is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. A portion of your ticket is tax-deductible.

Over the past 20 years, sub-Saharan Africa has received a substantial amount of international aid to bring clean water to communities in need. In the developing world, 40% of water projects fail after 2-5 years. More than 70 million people have been affected by these broken handpumps in sub-Saharan Africa, a fact that served as the inspiration for the co-founders to develop and found Water Collective in 2011.

After working on water projects in Uganda, Kenya, and Cameroon, Josh and Sophia found that addressing the water crisis required a lot of attention to what had failed in the past. Water Collective is a non-profit organization that focuses on securing clean water for communities in need and keeping water flowing after it’s installed. Building on the lessons of failed water projects, the organization addresses the larger issue of why water projects fail by tackling the two biggest culprits – lack of management and money. Each Water Collective project is paired with workshops on income-boosting skills and maintenance training to support the economic and upkeep needs of an installed water solution.

Water Collective has helped over 55,000 people gain access to clean water and expect to reach 20,000 more people through the impact of this year’s Gala.
