One Drop Recognized as Top NonProfit in Canada

International water foundation One Drop™ was named one of the Top 10 International Impact Charities in Canada for 2019 for ‘making a difference’ by Charity Intelligence, an organization that conducts independent research and develops in-depth reports in the philanthropic sector. As part of this recognition, One Drop was acknowledged for delivering high-impact projects overseas and for its high return per each dollar invested in its safe water access initiatives worldwide. One Drop was also recognized last year by Charity Intelligence as one of the Top 10 Impact Charities of 2018 for Canada.

“We are thrilled that One Drop has climbed this year into one of the 10 international leading charities in Canada. One Drop’s mission is to ensure sustainable access to safe water and sanitation for the most vulnerable communities. It is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 6: to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all by 2030,” said Véronique Doyon, One Drop Chief Program Officer.

Established in 2007 by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté, the One Drop Foundation currently has 13 ongoing projects in Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia (India) and Africa. One Drop’s unique approach to international development is intrinsically linked to the arts, leveraging its knowledge from Cirque du Soleil in the creation of targeted initiatives using Social Art for Behaviour Change™. Through locally inspired social art activities such as theater, murals, videos and exhibitions, One Drop fosters positive change and empowers communities with the ultimate goal of ensuring the longevity of its projects.

Charity Intelligence reviews and rates over 750 Canadian charities and the Top 10 recently released are the organizations that have the highest measurable impact, delivering returns of seven times for every dollar donated, compared with average returns of 1-2 times on the dollar.
