Krista Dover Sees “Pandemic Pause” as an Opportunity

Krista Dover works with communities who need access to clean drinking water.Krista Dover works with communities who need access to clean drinking water.You may have caught an interview last year with our alumna Krista Dover (Class of 2008) who is serving as Executive Director of a non-profit organization called Clean Water for the World (CWFW). The basis of their work is the notion that clean water is a basic human right, and they raise money to “provide simple and adaptable water purification systems to communities that lack access to potable water.” In fact, right now they’re taking advantage of a gift that has provided them with a matching fund opportunity in an effort to raise extra funds for their mission. Krista says CWFW is using this “pause” of the pandemic to “create better reporting measures, better ways of measuring our impact, and improving how we do our work…”

In short, they’ll be ready to do even better work as soon as they can get back to business!
