Process of Bringing Clean and Safe Drinking Water to Millions Around the World

In episode 124 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast I speak with Christoph Gorder, Chief Global Water Officer of charity: water, on the process of bringing clean and safe drinking water to millions around the world.

Christoph Gorder joined charity: water in 2012 to lead the organization’s global water investments in 28 countries. Since its founding in 2006, charity: water has raised more than $500 million and provided clean water to over 13 million people. In his role as Chief Global Water Officer, Christoph also oversees technology innovations that increase transparency and long-term impact of clean water programs.

Prior to joining charity: water, Christoph spent 15 years leading disaster response operations and managing large-scale healthcare delivery programs around the world. He grew up in the Central African Republic and Nigeria, where getting clean water is still a dream for millions.

771 million people in the world live without clean and safe drinking water.

That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. charity: water works with local partners to implement sustainable, community-owned water projects in remote communities. Since 2006, thanks to their local partners and over a million supporters, they’ve brought clean and safe water to more than 13 million people around the world.
