Water For People Committee
NC WFP’s National WFP page at http://ncwfp.tap.waterforpeople.org/
The purpose of the North Carolina Water For People (NCWFP) Committee is to Help People in developing countries Help Themselves. Water For People strongly believes that project beneficiaries, men and women, must be actively involved in all aspects of a project (planning, design, implementation, cost-sharing and operation/maintenance) to nurture local autonomy, initiative, management and ownership. NCWFP has adopted the Country of Bolivia, and actively funds projects and participates in annual work trips benefiting those less fortunate in Bolivia.
The Committee consists of a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Web Master, Board Liaison, and any interested NC AWWA/WEA members. Volunteers not belonging to the NC AWWA-WEA may participate in specific activities.
1. To educate the local public about the international drinking water crisis, and to provide an avenue to
help those in developing countries.
2. To expand and support the national Water For People organization.
3. To raise funds for drinking water and sanitation improvement projects in Bolivia.
4. To continue to cultivate relationships between North Carolina volunteers and our Bolivian partners,
through annual work trips to Bolivia and frequent communication.
