Introducing: Splash

Editors Note: Seattle-based nonprofit, A Child’s Right, announces today the decision to change its name to Splash and the launch of its new web site. Since its inception in 2006, Splash has been dedicated to changing the lives of vulnerable children in impoverished urban areas throughout the world by providing clean, safe drinking water to orphanages, schools, children’s hospitals, street shelters, and rescue homes. Its founder and executive director, Eric Stowe, explains why he felt a change was in order, “Where 'A Child's Right' held us back, Splash moves us forward. It allows us to talk about our mission in a way that is positive rather than defensive, collaborative rather than combative." The change in name does not alter the nonprofit’s mission, core work model, or plans for the future. Take a look at the video below, which is reposted here with permission, for an introduction to Splash and its work.

Kids need clean water to be healthy, to grow and thrive, to attend school regularly, and to fulfill their potential.

Since 2006, Splash has developed a highly effective model to ensure safe water for urban children living at the intersection of these two streets: ‘greatest degrees of poverty’ and ‘worst water quality conditions.’ Leveraging world-class water purification technology, sustainable monitoring and maintenance, excellent people, and a rigorous commitment to transparency, Splash will soon announce that every orphanage in China has safe drinking water — and this is just the beginning.
