The Akvo foundation helps donors and doers reach out to fund many thousands of new water and sanitation projects. Money flows quickly because donors choose what to fund and follow progress online. People can use these storylines to build exciting new campaigns and networks.
Our partners lead the world in sharing updates using Akvo tools. Better feedback means happy donors, and dialogue between field workers builds skills and improves quality. Time and money are saved while people across the world get safe drinking water and proper sanitation.
The Akvo Foundation was formally incorporated in September 2008, but work started on Akvo in autumn 2006. Akvo was founded by the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) and several key individuals. People who played a key role at the start were Thomas Bjelkeman-Pettersson, Jeroen van der Sommen (Director of NWP), Peter van der Linde, Gino Lee, Mark Charmer, Gabriel von Heijne, Mark Nitzberg, Caroline Figuères, and Paul van Koppen.
