Enabling Change, Uplifting Lives
Manila Water Foundation at a glance
In 2005, the Manila Water group of companies in the Philippines established its social responsibility arm, the Manila Water Foundation. Since then, the Foundation has been guided by its vision to become the enabler of change that will uplift the quality of life of Base of the Pyramid (BoP) communities, the poorest of the poor, through sustainable access to water and used water services.
At the onset, the Foundation carried out its vision in a holistic approach by giving low-income communities access to clean and potable water, educating them on proper water use and sanitation, and allowing them to have sustainable livelihood to be able to keep up with the costs of having their own water lines. This gave birth to the three focus areas that encapsulate all the programs that the Foundation has been championing: (1) Water Supply and Sanitation, (2) Water Education, and (3) Community Assistance and Livelihood.
