Welcome to Project Clean Water!

In 1997, I founded Project Clean Water. It is a non-profit charity foundation that is working to improve the quality of life for millions of people by helping to provide clean water on a global scale. We target villages around the world with clean water problems, and we work with the communities to find sustainable solutions to provide them with safe drinking water. To date we have helped over 30 communities overcome their individual drinking water problems in 13 different countries, on 5 different continents.

I am very excited to announce that Project Clean Water recently formed a partnership with the Voss Foundation and Virgin Unite to support water projects in sub-Saharan Africa. We are calling this partnership "Give a Drop" and our first project together is to help provide water to the village of Pel in Dogon, Mali. The Dogon civilization is one of the most ancient in Africa. The survival of this unique culture and way of life is currently being threatened by global changes in the environment. I am so pleased to be able to help. For more information of this project, click here to visit the Voss Foundation's web site.

I became interested in clean water when I was 18 and lived in my car. I had sick kidneys and had to drink 2 gallons of purified water a day. I could not afford to buy much bottled water, and it dawned on me that if it was this hard to get clean drinking water in the United States, then it was probably a huge global issue. Boy, was I right.

Solutions and technologies exist to provide clean, affordable drinking water anywhere in the world. These solutions will save lives, reduce financial burdens, foster peace, and relieve millions of people from worrying about their next drink of water.
