The Millennium Water Alliance was

non-governmental organizations working in water and sanitation formed the

solutions through advocacy, shared knowledge, and collaborative programming.
Since then, MWA has created consortium field programs in which member NGOs
bring their strengths and share ideas on effective approaches, for maximum
efficiency and long-term effectiveness. Our major collaborative field programs
to date operate in Ethiopia, Kenya, and in five countries in Central America.
