OUR PURPOSE

Surge provides sustainable safe water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions, in an effort to change the world one drop at a time.

In a world in which 2,300 people die every day because of inadequate drinking water and sanitation, Surge takes a multi-faceted approach to reach as many people as possible.

Our tactics include:

    • ENGAGING sponsors and donors to invest in sustainable and innovative clean water projects.
    • WORKING with community leaders to develop sustainable solutions in areas of need.
    • EDUCATING communities on critical practices for clean water, sanitation, and hygiene.
    • SHARING information on the global water crisis to show how local action can have global impact.

OUR VALUES

    • EQUALITY.  Every person has a right to clean water. It is necessary for life.
    • COMMUNITY.  We all share some responsibility for one another. We must help those in need.
    • SECURITY.  All people should have basic economic, social, and physical security, enabling each one of us to focus on our families, children, and communities.

SURGE’S 100% PLEDGE

100% of public donations fund safe water, sanitation, and associated education projects. All administrative costs are covered by our partners, sponsors, private donors, and volunteers.
