Global H2O

Global H2O

Former NCSU graduate and Raleigh native, James Wilde, recently started a non-profit aimed at providing clean water to regions of the world where it's not easily accessible. Since July, Global H2O has been working to install various water collection and distribution utilities around the world. The first project consisted of drilling a well in the town of Dibolyec in northern Uganda. The project cost about $15,000 and will supply locals with 7,200 liters of water everyday. Using UN standards thats enough water to supply 1440 people daily.

Wilde, is currently drawing attention to the non-profit by attempting to climb Mount Everest. The non-profit hopes to draw corporate and private donations to continue their work. You can check out their next project here and also get involved by either volunteering or interning.
