The fundamental purpose of GWF is to unlock capital for the benefit of the underserved on Earth. Conscious Capital, rather than Philanthropy, is preferred to effect sustainable progress over the next several generations. Invested money, by definition, requires partnership for sustainability.
GWF, informed by 10 years of experience in Rotary International throughout the world, offers a higher impact by simultaneously solving water and power issues, establishing profitable businesses run by the poor, and elevating women in positions of leadership.
At the end of the day, each installation of a water business with state-of-art technology benefits 10,000+ with daily safe water provision, and employs between 10 to 12 in the village.
Install over 1000 water purification facilities by end of 2026, each processing enough safe water to provide 10,000 people with two liters each day. These will be run as enterprises run by and for the poor, with over 50% to be managed and owned by women. The net revenue will be used to establish the enterprises and pay ongoing operating expensives, and will gainfully employ between 10-12 employees. Further, the revenue will be sufficient enough to also provide for much of the village’s essential social services such as classroom expansion, sanitation needs and even college scholarships. Finally, in those villages where reliable, robust power isn’t provided by a national or regional grid, the village can become a financial partner with GWF to install a smart power grid that can provide renewable electricity generation for the homes, schools and business incubators for the town. Expectations: Annual earned net revenue for each village based on water sales: $180,000 (USD). After satisfying all OpEx, including staff wages, the village has residual income to apply to essential social service needs each year.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism. Together, the collective action of Council members will contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable future for all people and our planet.
