We envision the day when everyone in the world can take a safe drink of water. It is easy to take for granted ready access to a safe supply of drinking water. Yet nearly one billion people lack this most basic commodity. Creating accessible, safe water supplies in developing countries liberates people to live healthier, fuller, more productive lives.
The purpose of the National Student Water Association (NSWA) is to provide students in the nation with awareness about the water crisis, a global epidemic that affects nearly a billion people annually. The mission of the NSWA is to provide disadvantaged communities in developing countries with adequate sanitation facilities, and potable water. In this effort, the NSWA student volunteers help create innovative solutions to engineer piping systems, as an ample way to transport the water cleanly and efficiently.
Our mission is to inspire people to act:
- Donors – to provide consistent financial resources with a sense of solidarity for those in need of safe water
- Students and volunteers – to seek innovative and efficient solutions to meeting the global water supply needs of today and tomorrow
- People in need of safe water – to take the lead in meeting their own needs
The National Student Water Association intends to carry out these goals and purposes at Wayne State University by assisting the less fortunate in around the globe to provide consistent financial resources with a sense of solidarity for those in need of safe water. With student staff and volunteers at Wayne State University we hope to seek innovative and efficient solutions to meeting the global water supply needs of today and tomorrow. Every $25 raised will give someone water for life!
