VOSS FOUNDATION

Voss Foundation is dedicated to providing access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene as a means to enable community-driven development in Sub-Saharan Africa, and raising awareness of the ongoing need in the region. Founded by the directors of VOSS of Norway ASA as an independent 501(c)(3), Voss Foundation has offices in New York and Oslo. Since our inception in 2008, Voss Foundation has funded 154 water access points and 462 sanitation facilities in Kenya, Mali, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, Swaziland, and Uganda (as of August 2016)

WOMEN HELPING WOMEN

Women Helping Women (WHW) is a Voss Foundation global, grassroots initiative that brings together champions of clean water to improve the lives of women and their communities worldwide. The WHW network has already funded 32 water access points and 291 sanitation facilities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Liberia, Swaziland, and Uganda. When circumstances permit, WHW donors have the unique opportunity to travel to project sites and meet the women and communities they have helped. In addition to Women Helping Women New York City, 2016 WHW events were held in Boston and the Hamptons.
