Around the world, 884 million people do not have access to safe drinking water and 2.6 billion are without adequate sanitation facilities. Dotting the landscape are broken water pumps, filled latrines, and reminders of well-meaning solutions that didn't last. At the end of the day, any technical solution - whether it's digging a well, putting in a pump or installing a latrine - is only as good as its lasting impact.
Join us for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and great music at the Water For People World's Water Benefit at ACE 2012. This "Party for a Purpose" supports Water For People's important work to bring sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene education solutions to Everyone every family, every school and every clinic in the developing countries where we work.
