Water Right Makers is a non-profit initiative dedicated to « Makers » in the water and sanitation sector. It aims at promoting those working on the ground, facilitating collaboration between them and with other communities. WaterRightmakers global ambition is to create the conditions for more collaboration between all actors involved in access to water and sanitation no matter what organization they work for or are financed by. That, we believe, can maximize the impact of makers’ work and actions and accelerate access to water and sanitation for all.
