Global Water
June 30, 2011

Global Water stands behind its motto of changing the world one "drop" at a time. Although a small NGO, they are long on hard work, enthusiasm and reach, having established numerous local village clean water systems throughout South and Central America largely on their own time, with limited funds and personal, tireless, dedicated efforts.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helped put together their newsletter containing photos showing how welcomed their water projects were to the local population.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add two more engineers with water well drilling experience willing to work in third world countries on a small and personal basis with the local population. Take on part time person to act as a contribution coordinator.
