Annual Campaign Launched 
Lead Gift of $239,000 pledged!
 
Soon after launching our 2013 Campaign in late May, we got the very exciting news that an international organization has committed to a $239,000 project.   This was more than double the $100,000 that we had planned for the top campaign donation - and really propels us quickly towards our goal of $650,000!

Water Economy Network selects Deep Springs as official Global Partner 
 
 
The Water Economy Network – WEN - is a new Western PA regional organization that helps water sector stakeholders access water-sector business opportunities, encourages start-up company formation through innovative technology development and deployment, and attracts both national and international water related industry to the region.
 
As WEN developed, they realized that their impact can be more than just regional.   As they bring water industries to Western PA, they will have a national influence.    But extending even further, WEN can use its expertise and resources to have a global impact.   Recently they selected Deep Springs International because it is an organization birthed out of Grove City College which has strong connections with Pittsburgh and the region.   

By having an official Global Partner, WEN can help Network Members also develop Corporate Social Responsibility programs that include global impact.  We are excited about this new opportunity and look forward to working with the companies of the Water Economy Network!

National Leadership Conference a Success 
 
From May 9 to 10, the leaders of Deep Springs convened in Leogane for two days of training, planning and strategizing.  Leaders came from all corners of Haiti: Jolivert, Leogane, Milot, Plaine du Nord and Fonds Verrettes.
     
Some of the activities and topics included: a review of last year's achievements, new innnovations, monitoring methods, sales management techniques, review of recent research, and options for new products. 
  
Goal-setting was done at the national, regional, and personal levels, using a new methodology.   The staff was excited to learn that one of their own (Madame Eveline) will be receiving the coveted Gangarosa Sustainability Award.
 
The team in Haiti is very committed to improving health nationwide through production and distribution of the local Gadyen Dlo brand chlorine and our Buckets of Life.  It was very exciting to hear them express their desire to see every family in their country helped through proper water treatment!
