Nonprofit Overview

Mission: In a world where a child dies every 15 seconds from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene, Thirst-Ed's goal is to make knowledge of household water treatment and proper hygiene as common as how to cook rice or fry an egg. Thirst-Ed promotes education and knowledge as the principal tools for safe-water intervention, inspiring the drive for improved water quality to come from within the community prior to the introduction of safe-water technologies.

Programs: Vendor of water equipment and education program for the manufacture of water filters.

We have known Curt & Cathy, the founders of Thirst Aid for about ten years, since their first trip to Thailand and encounter with the Karen refugees there. Since then we have visited with them almost every year.
