Our Mission

We clean water for kids.

Splash is a social justice organization committed to the poor, an international development agency disciplined around urban economies, a social enterprise dedicated to putting ourselves out of business, and a safe water company focused on children. Put this odd combination together and exciting things are happening.

Core Values

We shift, we grow, we stumble, we pivot and we continually refine our work and scope—yet amidst the ever-moving landscape of international development, there are core values that act as constants for Splash.

Meet the Team

The Splash Team is international. We hire fun folks who continually impress us with their smarts, ingenuity and tenacity. We're collegial. We're rigorous. We work hard, play hard, and dream big. Really, really big.
