Cornell Water Society

The Cornell Water Society is a student-run organization dedicated to public health outreach via the installation and promotion of clean water solutions in underserved communities in the U.S. and abroad. Our current flagship project, MAJI KWA AFYA ("Water for Health"), is a collaborative effort between current Weill Cornell Medicine students, the ASMK foundation of Shinyanga, W.S. Darley & Company, H2OpenDoors, and Rotary International to bring clean, reliable, and affordable drinking water to the people of the Busiya chiefdom in the Shinyanga region of western Tanzania. Our goal is to ensure sustainability of this and future projects through continued participation from Weill Cornell students, ensuring long-lasting safe drinking water for those who need it most.
