The employee honored by Scorpion Design as the October Employee of the Month chose to give their donation to Water for People—an international effort to provide people with locally sustainable drinking water. The organization turned from dream into reality in early 1991 after the former president of American Water Works Association (AWWA), Ken Miller teamed up with several other people who shared his vision. After almost a decade of pursuing this dream, it became reality.
Currently, Water for People is a present force in 10 countries throughout the world; they, however, have been able to work in more than 40 countries since they began. Whenever they begin work in a new area, they first collect and analyze all necessary data to determine the present state of the area. They then work to provide both a better water supply, as well as improved sanitation. It is their goal to provide each region with 100% coverage with water and then to replicate the model to other areas.
Scorpion Cares is proud to have donated to this effort and to help them further their reach throughout the world. We understand the pressing need for sustainable, sanitary water and the far-reaching effect it can have on developing countries.
