Changing Lives with Water
ROCKBlue is a global nonprofit working to create a world where everyone in urban areas of developing countries has access to clean water and basic sanitation.
Why water? About 1 in 3 people worldwide lack access to clean water and more than half of the world’s population lives without basic sanitation — the fastest-growing numbers of them in cities. Access to safely managed water and sanitation supports health, education, income, dignity and even gender equality. It also strengthens communities, builds healthy cities and creates a more sustainable environment.
The world is changing, and our approach to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) must change with it. Using a low overhead model, ROCKBlue partners with utilities in the developing world — relying on local leadership and community support — empowering them to provide safe, clean water that improves lives and supports healthy, sustainable cities.
Helping Utilities Create
Healthy, Sustainable Cities
Cities, the economic engines and cultural hubs of nations, are growing fast. By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in them. Utilities are the foundation of urban life. ROCKBlue works with utilities to help shape a better present and future for people in developing cities and our planet.
