WATERSTEP

More people die from waterborne illness and poor sanitation than die in armed conflict.

 

This non-profit organization, originally named EDGE Outreach, works to save lives at risk with safe water in developing countries and disaster areas, including Puerto Rico, Haiti, Kenya, India, the Dominican Republic, China, Uganda and Costa Rica.

 

Their approach combines practical training with readily available technology to empower self-sufficiency at the local level. The organization finances their mission primarily through a shoe-recycling program that generates operating funds, while also promoting micro-business opportunities and reducing landfill volume.
