Water is the world’s most valuable resource. Without it, there would be no life on Earth. Yet, 780 million people don’t have access to clean drinking water, and more than two billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation. Confronted with this reality, many Peace Corps Volunteers are motivated to make a change but lack the resources. NPCA’s partnership with the non-profit Water Charity ensures funding for approved water or sanitation projects proposed by current and returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Volunteers may submit water and sanitation project proposals on behalf of the communities they serve, and if they are approved, funding is guaranteed.
NPCA invests 85 percent of the donation directly in the projects and 15 percent where needed most to support our overall mission.
