Director of Finance

Splash is a nonprofit organization that delivers water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), solutions for children living in urban poverty. Founded in 2007, Splash serves nearly 600,000 children daily across eight countries in Asia and Africa.

Customized for each country and project site, Splash installs water filtration systems, increases water storage, provides drinking and hand washing stations, conducts hygiene education by training teachers and facilitating student hygiene clubs, and rehabilitates or constructs new sanitation facilities. The long-term goal of every project is to transition the responsibility of ensuring clean water to local businesses and governments. Splash’s ultimate goal is for NGOs and governments to replicate their model to new cities and countries.
