NGC has partnered with Global Partners Running Waters Inc., a nonprofit organization working in cooperation with the United Nations, to increase access to safe water in Latin America. 1.1 billion people around the world currently get their water from rivers, ponds, or other sources subject to contamination. Donations made through NGC will help to bring safe drinking water to villages.
Our continued support of this organization will allow us to make a positive impact on another of their upcoming worthy projects.
Donations may be made online or by mail in any amount and will be acknowledged with a printed tax receipt.

Past NGC contributions helped to complete a project at Ojo de Agua Quiche. Clean drinking water was brought into this village. Hours that villagers spent walking miles to fill jugs with water can now be used to plant food and raise animals for families. Global Partners Running Waters current major project is to bring potable water to 113 families in Quiejel, Chichicastenango, Guatemala.
