    World Water Partners

    We are a group of students dedicated to the establishment of a just and sustainable world, beginning with the most basic human need:  WATER.  We are committed to making access to clean, stable water accessible reality for every single person we can. This student organization is a grassroots, student-driven effort to expand the network of providers and encourage collaboration, raise awareness, galvanize support, and gain funding for clean water projects. Our activities include: The "Student Ambassador" program, which provides students with opportunities to work with some of the largest non-profit organizations in the water sector to help develop partnerships and collaborations among the various organizations. Students are selected to represent one non-profit organization, acting as a liaison, conducting research, and gathering information about their current water projects. This work will eventually serve to create a comprehensive network of provider projects encouraging collaboration, thereby increasing efficiency, accessibility, and lowering costs of projects. Students will have the opportunity to develop relationships with these organizations, learn more about the non-profit sector, and aid in making clean water a reality. Grassroots advocacy and fundraising for our various projects. Several fundraising events are planned and organized by students, who are encouraged to utilize their individual talents, creativity, and motivations to galvanize support and funding for this incredible cause. We are currently planning and raising funds for a clean water project in Darmang, Ghana, founded by a SU student in 2010.
