CONCORD, New Hampshire — The Water Project (TWP), a nonprofit organization committed to providing safe, reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa, is proud to announce its new membership in the Millennium Water Alliance (MWA), a global coalition of leading water and sanitation organizations.

By joining forces with MWA, The Water Project will gain shared resources, knowledge, and networks, therefore enhancing its impact.

“The Water Project will benefit from membership in the Millennium Water Alliance because of MWA’s commitment to convening, accelerating learning, and increasing influence among sector leaders with global experience, expertise, and impact,” said The Water Project’s Director of Program Spencer Bogle. 

“MWA provides a forum where we can: raise the visibility of TWP and our impact, both contribute and learn from innovative solutions through MWA’s value of information and intelligence exchange, and attract new sources of revenue to expedite our vision in areas of alignment with MWA (which we see as many).

“The Millennium Water Alliance and its members have a proven track record of building water resilience and sanitation access around the globe. We are all committed to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, the SDG for clean water and sanitation. Furthermore, we know that the task ahead of us is too big for any one organization. 

“We are eager to learn from the vast experience within the Millenium Water Alliance that can help us improve the reliability and resilience of The Water Project’s services to those who need safe water in Kenya, Uganda, and Sierra Leone. It is an honor to join a group that desires to learn from our research and experience as well.” 

This new partnership has been in the making since the two organizations co-presented a side session on monitoring groundwater data during the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Water and Health Conference in October 2023.

“The research and desire for practical and sustainable groundwater management revealed many of our common values,” Spencer said. 

A lot of work went into this partnership, for which Spencer thanked The Water Project’s Program team.

“In general, this is a whole team effort,” Spencer said. “Everyone deserves recognition for our membership in the Millennium Water Alliance.”

As a new member of MWA, The Water Project will participate in various collaborative projects, including integrated WASH programming, policy advocacy, and innovative research initiatives to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals related to water and sanitation.
