Creating bold partnerships and innovative fundraising initiatives
By creating bold partnerships and innovative fundraising initiatives, we find new ways to unlock funds that allow us to pursue our mission to provide sustainable access to safe water and sanitation, worldwide.
Since 2007, One Drop has raised
more than US $141,000,000
through partnerships and fundraising events.
As the brainchild of Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté, One Drop is imbued with boundless creativity and an artistic mindset. By using social art as a tool to foster behaviour change, we’ve developed the Social Art for Behaviour ChangeTM (SABC) approach, which builds a profound sense of involvement, ownership, and empowerment in the communities we work with.
Our unique Social Art for Behaviour Change approach emphasizes participation and implementing action plans that are adapted to target groups, influencers, desired behaviours and local contexts. Our social art programs rely on collaboration and innovation as essential elements, which result in sustainable WASH behaviours and Social Art products created with, for, and ultimately by the communities.
The SABC approach stands at the heart of our A·B·C for Sustainability™ model, which includes three components: Access, Behaviour change, and Capital to drive long-term change in communities.
Impact at scale
One Drop collaborates with the private sector, development agencies and development banks to leverage the funds we collect through our events and campaigns. The objective is to convene financial partners to bring our projects at scale and maximise our impact.
For more than 10 years, One Drop has developed new ways of collecting funds. With the philanthropic support of our creative partners and generous donors from around the world, we proudly continue to bring safe water access projects to new sectors.
