Status of initiative: N/a
Description/achievement of initiative

For the past two decades, Water.org has strived to develop and drive market-based and scalable models that can more effectively address water and sanitation needs at the base of the economic pyramid. Water.org is committed to taking this approach to the next level by expanding and scaling its WaterCredit initiative in India to reach a minimum of 800,000 people, of which more than half are women and children, with clean water and sanitation by 2016. This approach, Water.org's initial commitment to Every Woman Every Child, will empower thousands of households to gain access to critical financial services to meet their own water and sanitation needs over-time, and improve their well-being. More than 90 percent of WaterCredit loan recipients will be women.
