About

Did you know that more than 800 million people around the world do not have access to clean drinking water? And, about 2 billion people do not have access to a toilet. Here in the U.S., nearly 2 million people do not enjoy these privileges that so many of us take for granted. George McGraw‘s DIGDEEP Water project, which facilitates water access in water-starved areas across the globe — including here in the U.S. — aims to empower communities by using water as a rallying point for the future. McGraw’s goal is to provide “a very human, individual approach to water access” by showing donors and recipients alike that water is important to us all.
“The thing about water is that it affects us all equally,” McGraw says. “Whether you have access to water or not, it’s important that that access is truly sustainable — that you protect it, conserve it [and] understand it.”
