Hi, I'm George

 

I want to change the way you think about water.

I run DigDeep in Los Angeles, which I founded. Millions of Americans still don't have clean, running water at home. (Crazy, right?) DigDeep helps those communities build and manage their own water systems, while teaching young Americans to use their precious resources more intelligently. Our work started in East and West Africa, but now DigDeep is the only global water organization focused on solving this problem in the U.S.

About DigDeep

DigDeep is a unique human rights non-profit working to ensure that every American has clean water, forever. 

In places without clean, running water or basic plumbing, DIGDEEP empowers American communities to build and manage low-cost, locally-led projects that bring safe, hot and cold running water into homes, schools and community center -- like the Navajo Water Project

In places that already have clean water, DIGDEEP designs experiences that help Americans form a deep and lasting connection to the water we often take for granted. By investing in curricula, events and digital activations, and by leveraging brand and celebrity visibility, we help people better understand and care for our water resources, making them last.
