Alumnus seeks to preserve global health through work with clean and drinkable water
For Mike Altman ’12, it all started with a Heston Summer Experience to Uganda in 2011. During his time abroad, he discovered a passion for the environment and helping others in need while partnering with The Foundation for Sustainable Development and The AIDS Support Organization on rainwater catchment systems. Today, he continues in this tradition, working for the Growth Team at charity: water.
charity: water, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing clean and safe drinking water for people in developing nations, takes 100 percent of its donations and directs them back into the field to fund water projects -- a mission that attracted Altman to the organization and inspired him to take it a step farther.
