Why we invest
It's really hard to get sustainable water and sanitation services to the poor. Private sector solutions rarely reach the poorest people, and public sector services simply don't materialize. WSUP works with public and private service providers -- like municipal water utilities -- to demonstrate and scale up successful models that improve services for the lowest income people in the rapidly-growing cities of Africa and South Asia. While their model is complex, we have confidence that it is getting much better services -- at increasing scale -- to millions of people.
