Dynamic Water is a small non-profit organization based in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, and is dedicated to providing access to clean, safe drinking water to communities in need. We partner with organizations like the Thirst Project, SuNica, and Global Hope India to fund the building of wells.
According to the World Health Organization, “Better access to clean water, sanitation services and water management creates tremendous opportunity for the poor and is a progressive strategy for economic growth.” The United Nations published the Millennium Development Goals Report 2012, noting that “783 million people, or 11 percent of the global population, remain without access to an improved source of drinking water. Such sources include household connections, public standpipes, boreholes, protected dug wells, protected springs and rainwater collections.”
We realize that we will not be able to bring clean drinking water to all of the people who need it, but we refuse to let that stop us. It’s overwhelming to think about providing water for entire countries in need–but by focusing on one community, one family … one group of people … anything is possible.
The United Nations General Assembly “recognized the right of every human being to have access to sufficient water for personal and domestic uses (between 50 and 100 litres of water per person per day), which must be safe, acceptable and affordable (water costs should not exceed 3 per cent of household income), and physically accessible (the water source has to be within 1,000 metres of the home and collection time should not exceed 30 minutes).
