Water is fundamental. I believe that everyone in the world should have access to free clean water. Matt Damon and Water.org are doing just that, educating and providing clean drinking water to impoverished areas of the globe.
Water.org traces its roots back to the founding of WaterPartners in 1990. In July of that year, WaterPartners merged with Matt Damon’s H2O Africa, resulting in the launch of Water.org, co-founded by Gary White and Matt Damon.
