About Us:

Impact Water is a for-profit, social enterprise dedicated to providing safe drinking water solutions at scale.

We are a global Kiva partner, a Yunus Social Business (YSB) Investee, a winner of the ‘Best Business Act’ for Billion Acts of Peace, and we were recently selected to model an innovative USD $500k impact bond called the Social Success Note in partnership with UBS Optimus Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and YSB.
