Paper for Water's primary mission is to bring water and the Word to the Thirsty one piece of paper at a time. In 2011, founders, Isabelle and Katherine Adams learned that a child was dying every 15 seconds from unclean water and that millions of girls like them were spending their day hauling water rather than attending school. They wanted that to change by founding the 501c3 nonprofit, Keiki International Foundation, DBA Paper for Water. Paper for Water raises money to fund water and sanitation projects worldwide, creating opportunities for better health, education, and brighter futures. Additionally, Paper for Water raises awareness of the world water crisis through educational programming and community engagement. Paper for Water leadership programing empowers youth with skills in philanthropy, public speaking, event planning, and entrepreneurship. This education improves their understanding, compassion, empathy, and a broader knowledge of the world around them.
