Water For People

Database Support Intern

Type of work: Internship
Location: Denver, CO
Date Posted: July 6th, 2012

Water For People works to build a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and where no one suffers or dies from a water- or sanitation-related disease. This is our vision.

World Water Corps is a unique volunteer arm of Water For People that facilitates the completion of needs assessments, monitoring and reporting and other mission-based research in the field through short-term volunteer trips throughout the year. These volunteer trips are open to the public and support our goals of obtaining quality, up to date data on all of our projects throughout the world and also spreading the word to as many people as possible about the need for improved access to water and sanitation across the world and the work we’re doing.
