Black Tie International:
World Water Day



 
WORLD WATER DAY

 
IS MARCH 22, 2012

 


 
Today much of the world faces a global safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene crisis. In contrast to easy access to taps and toilets across the United States, one out of every eight people worldwide lacks safe drinking water and two out of every five people lack adequate sanitation.

World Water Day is held every March 22. Recognized by the United Nations and the global community, World Water Day reminds us that much of the world still faces a global water, sanitation and hygiene crisis, and that it is our urgent obligation to act. A coalition of diverse US-based groups is calling for increased commitments by the US government and private citizens to reduce poverty, disease and hunger by helping to improve sustainable access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation for many millions around the world.


 
RICHARD GREENLY, CO-FOUNDER OF THE WATER4 FOUNDATION AND UPCOMING U.N. PANELIST
IS AVAILABLE FOR EXPERT INTERVIEWS

 
Richard will be speaking at the UN Headquarters in New York as a panelist during The Infopoverty World Conference 2012, March 22-23, 2012 as part of a session on promoting health for all through new technologies.  He will discuss Water4's unique approach to the worldwide crisis in clean water as well as its role in training and connecting the communities it serves.

"To Maintain Water Pumps, It Takes More Than a Village,"
By Tina Rosenberg, New York Times

 
 
ABOUT THE WATER4 FOUNDATION

 

The Water4 Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity based out of Oklahoma City, Okla., was founded in 2008 by Dick and Terri Greenly (co-owners of Pumps of Oklahoma) with the mission to not only provide water to at-risk, impoverished areas but also, to teach and provide employment opportunities through their inexpensive pumps and drilling methods.  While numerous organizations are helping to solve the global water crisis, no other organization approaches or executes the process of providing water quite like Water4 does. It gets the nationals involved in the future of their home village’s water issues. As a result of their new vocation they are engaged daily in fixing the water problems as well as helping their village and themselves find new ways to prosper.

Since its inception in 2008, Water4 has helped meet the needs of over 100,000 people for reasonable access to clean drinking water in countries like Haiti, Sierra Leone, Uganda, and Rwanda. Water4’s 2014 goal is to get water to a million people. After 2014 with our continued efforts, we should be able to expand the number of people reached each year thereafter.

ABOUT THE INFOPOVERTY WORLD CONFERENCE 2012

Established in 2001 under the auspices of the United Nations, the Infopoverty World Conference has become an event of critical importance held annually at the United Nations Headquarters in NewYork. The event is devoted to the role the digital revolution can play in development strategies. The Conference over the years has benefited from the participation of leaders in their fields of analysis, strategic evaluation and applied practice. Its aim is to contribute to fighting poverty with innovative and appropriate use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The Infopoverty World Conference is the hub of a conception of digital that goes beyond gadgets and social networks to the application of digital tools and facilities to the needs of the poor through the wise use of low cost and smart technologies. As the world has become almost entirely connected, it is important that the benefits of the digital revolution be made available to those most in need. The digital revolution also offers business opportunities for the companies, local and global, that are able to provide products and services that answer to the needs of those at the base of
the pyramid.
