The Water crisis in California is nowhere as dire as the life-or-death issues faced by the 680 million people around the world who live without access to safe water. As WaterAid CEOs, Prabasi and Frost have helped bring water for drinking and cooking, as well as for sanitation facilities, to people in 27 countries. Prabasi was a driving force behind Congress’s 2014 Water for the World Act, which directs water funding toward needy communities. As of 2015, they’re also aligning their goals with the United Nations and its mission to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. “We believe clean water, sanitation and hygiene have huge ripple effects in underserved communities,” says Prabasi.
Sarina Prabasi is the Chief Executive of WaterAid America, the world’s largest international non-profit dedicated exclusively to helping the world’s poorest people gain long-term access to safe drinking water, toilets and effective hygiene education. With 20 years of experience in international development work, Sarina most recently served as Deputy Chief of Programs at Orbis International, and as Country Representative at WaterAid Ethiopia. Prior to that, she spent nearly ten years at Pact Inc., serving both in Washington, DC and overseas.
