Water For People Committee


   

Purpose

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.
