Our People

The key to the success of World Water Relief is an active, committed Board of Directors. By bringing together expertise from the business, financial, governmental and philanthropic communities, World Water Relief benefits from creative and knowledgeable direction. While we rely heavily on Board members and other volunteers to contribute their time and talents, we also have a small but highly accomplished staff who manage to accomplish more than teams many times their size. Our Board makes it possible to commit 100% of all donations to the projects by making personal donations toward administrative functions.
