Environmental issues are beginning to take the driver’s seat in different parts of the world. Some countries’ sustainable efforts are carried out through government while others can count on the nonprofit sector. Similar to other nations in the Global South, in Chile citizens unite and work together without the need of being legally recognized as an environmental group.
Water preservation is considered the best way to help us prepare if and before climate change gets any worse. Though many nations are enforcing certain practices through government efforts and the work of nonprofit organizations, some, like Puerto Rico, lack the programs and funding to make any progress.
Water for Good began with a mission to drill wells and provide water solutions to remote villages in this war-torn nation of 4.6 million people. Almost 20 years later, the nonprofit organization has created an exemplary legacy on sustainable social change.
The Last Wellbegan in 2009 with a simple premise: provide access to clean water to all the population in one of the most corrupt and poor countries in the world. By the end of December 2020, they may achieve the ultimate goal.
