Review for Global Water, Oxnard, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Global Water does incredible work for the neediest people on this planet. Not only do they bring clean water to those who are suffering, but they also do it in a sustainable, culturally sensitive way. The volunteers are some of the most compassionate and intelligent people I know. In addition, Global Water is one of the most efficient nonprofits I've ever worked with.

Review for Global Water, Oxnard, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started working with Global Water because I recognized that they were relieving suffering in the world in a fundamental and effective way. So much of hunger, conflict, environmental degradation and gender inequality is, at its root, caused by the scarcity of clean water and sanitation facilities. The people of Global Water (nearly all volunteers) not only have a passion for serving the poorest of people, but they also have hundreds of years combined experience in water treatment to provide smart solutions to problems. But what is most impressive about Global Water is how much they accomplish with so little. They are a paradigm of keeping it simple and focusing on what really matters. Ted Kuepper and his daughter Kathleen are two of the most bright, enthusiastic and kind people I know and it is a pleasure and privilege to work with them.
