Water For People, DC is a 100% volunteer committee. We organize various educational events throughout the year to fund raise and sspread awareness of global water issues. Recent events include a World Water Day celebration with Bartenders 4 Change  and our 2011 Gala for Women in Water, which raised approximately $80,000 and featured such distinguished speakers as Undersecretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs Maria Otero.

If you are interested in getting involved and supporting solutions to the global water challenge, join us at one of our monthly meetings! We meet the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6pm at:

M St. Bar and Grill, 2033 M. Street NW, Washington, DC 20036.
