We recognize trust is earned through operating with integrity, holding ourselves to the highest standards possible, actively listening and transparently sharing our work and ideas as well as our failures.
We know the world is evolving, as is the water sector and technology and believe we can learn from our peers, sector leaders, and, most importantly, the people we serve. We are committed to continuous improvement, embracing change, and challenging ourselves.
We acknowledge our path is not always linear, but we persevere. “Network” is in our name, and we know our success is dependent on collaboration within the sector and throughout the larger ecosystem.
We believe that sustainable solutions for safe, affordable water supply must be locally led. We strive to create an inclusive environment for our team and in the communities we serve.
Actor and philanthropist Paul Newman founded Safe Water Network with other civic leaders to solve a global challenge that would require innovation, collective action, and adaptive learning for all future generations: sustainable access to safe water.
We are a diverse team of dedicated professionals from different cultures and disciplines, with expertise in engineering, health care, development, business, government, and education.
We monitor and evaluate our work so our team, funders, supporters, and partners have a clear and transparent view of how we allocate and track our funding.
