Water for People and IRC WASH provide water and sanitation access to developing countries and communities. Water for People promotes access to high-quality drinking water and sanitation services through partnerships with local governments and businesses to ensure that, in every community they enter, every household, clinic, and school will have access to sanitation and water. IRC WASH also promotes access to drinking water and sanitation, but through consulting with schools. Both organizations work to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6), “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.” This common vision led them to co-found Agenda for Change, a member network focused on achieving SDG6. WFP and IRC WASH plan to merge their offices in Uganda to serve as the network’s headquarters and attract additional members. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration provided a grant to help cover the costs of forming the Alliance.
