Safe Water Network was co-founded in 2006 by the late actor and philanthropist Paul Newman, along with prominent civic and business leaders. In 2008 Safe Water Network established field offices in Accra, Ghana and New Delhi in India.
Our team of local water experts began laying the groundwork for an approach to developing the community capability to own and manage Safe Water Stations. Today our country teams oversee field initiatives, host forums and workshops, as well as produce publications and research about our work. An esteemed international board comprised of leading water authorities and business leaders contributes to an increasingly influential organization focused on empowering communities around the world to overcome the challenges to local sustainability.
