The goal of World Water Partners is to develop a viable model for unifying the thousands of organizations that currently work within the water sector of the developing world. We believe that Haiti is a strong candidate for demonstrating such a model, because it has a relatively small geographic area and has hundreds of aid organizations that are not well unified or coordinated. It is also the only country in the western hemisphere that is not on-track to meet the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals for improved water access. Our approach is to build a government-led, regionally-scaled and financially sustainable program that relies on the coordination of bottom-up, grassroots efforts for fundraising and implementation. After success is achieved in Haiti, the model can be replicated throughout the world so that the water and sanitation crises are permanently buried in history.
