“This means, simply, that every institutionalized orphan in China will have clean and safe drinking water,” explains Eric Stowe, the NGO’s Director. The scope of the work will cover all of China’s 31 provinces and municipalities.
This announcement is unheard of in terms of access, expansiveness, and achievement in China – especially for a scrappy and small nonprofit. Who exactly are these folks? And who is funding them?
Founded in 2006, A Child’s Right is the only group focused on clean water for urban institutionalized children right now – anywhere in the world. While other groups are doing wonderful — and challenging — work targeting basic access to water in the rural sphere, A Child’s Right is targeting urban areas.
