Blue Planet Network

Funding for safe drinking water at the community level

Principal Office: USA


Blue Planet Network aims to raise global awareness about the lack of safe drinking water, and to help fund solutions for communities without ready access to it.

Blue Planet Network developed and financially supports an online community where donors, NGOs, and observers work together to fund grassroots projects in community water supply and sanitation in developing countries.

Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Support for safe drinking water. Blue Planet Network funds projects that provide safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, grassroots watershed management, and related activities to improve community water supply.

Blue Planet Network raises funds online from individuals, foundations, trusts, corporations, community groups, and other donors.

The funding is directed to implementing partners of Blue Planet Network. Implementing partners are grassroots NGOs in developing countries where the water projects are carried out. Other implementers are international development NGOs that have water-related programs and projects in developing countries.
