Share A Glass, Save A Life!

Join us at the annual Wine For Us wine-tasting fundraiser to raise awareness and support for the work of development and progress through water, sanitation and health in developing countries.

From wine...

To water...

Come, meet your fellow residents, young professionals, business leaders and local government officials over stimulating conversation, delicious hors d'oeuvres and fine wines. Wine-pairings with artisan wines from Africa and South America will complement an assortment of hors d'oeuvres picked for the occasion. We will also have a selection of beers from the Orlando Brewing Company. Special displays will present the work and impact of Water For People while participants mingle and explore the lovely Orlando Science Center.

Last year’s event was sold out, so buy tickets early!!

What are the Local Actions?

The local chapter of Water For People's primary focus is on education, outreach and fundraising.

  • Volunteers visit local schools and community organizations to share the message of the importance of water/sanitation to our lives and livelihoods, conditions around the world and the impact that simple water/sanitation interventions have on the lives of women and children in communities around the world.
     
  • Volunteers also organize fundraisers and outreach events to build the local coalition of citizens and professionals to make a difference in lives around the world while learning and networking locally.

What are the Global Impacts?

Developing water/sanitation/hygiene in developing countries has an immediate impact on local communities.

  • Children no longer need to spend 2-4 hours each day fetching water – they can attend school instead.
  • Women no longer need to travel several miles to wash clothes or collect water for domestic chores – they can participate actively in their communities' development and their children's progress
  • Girls no longer need to quit school once they reach adolescence – privacy and access to proper sanitation means they continue in school
  • Parents no longer need to spend their time/money taking their children to the hospital – they can focus their efforts on trade and income-generating activities
  • Economic development of the communities has been shown to improve social and political equity and access to justice

 

Our vision is a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation;
a world where no one suffers or dies from a water- or sanitation-related disease.
