Clean Water Science Network

Our mission is to improve the health and quality of life of developing communities through educational outreach, fundamental scientific studies, and applied research projects focused on water and sanitation issues.

Millions of people around the globe lack a safe and reliable supply of drinking water 

​Since challenges faced by developing communities are best understood by those who live them daily, we strongly believe that the best way to encourage change is to build capacity at a local level. Many remarkable organizations exist to facilitate development projects, but few educational opportunities focused on the fundamentals of water and sanitation sciences are available to those with limited experience. ​We aim to fill this gap via programs targeted to empower the community members with the tools to improve their quality of life.


What we do

We run a mentorship program between undergraduate students in Latin America and graduate students in the US. 

We facilitate and fundraise for education and research programs aimed at bringing students from developing communities to work at at top-tier universities in the US and in their communities.

We lead educational workshops for high school and undergraduate students on water quality and treatment.
