Scott Harrison Success Story
After a decade of indulging his darkest vices as a nightclub promoter, Scott declared spiritual, moral, and emotional bankruptcy. He spent two years on a hospital ship off the coast of Liberia, saw the effects of dirty water firsthand, and came back to New York City on a mission to provide “Clean, Drinking Water” to continents which do not have those facilities.
Twelve years later, with the help of more than 1 million supporters worldwide, charity: water has raised more than $388 million and funded over 44,000 water projects in 28 countries. When completed, those projects will provide over 10 million people with clean, safe drinking water.
Scott Harrison left a life of luxury in New York City and headed for the shores of West Africa to volunteer with a hospital ship charity named Mercy Ships. The trip was a watershed moment, and in 2006 Harrison founded charity: water, a nonprofit that provides safe and potable drinking water in 26 countries around the world.
