Aquality is an organization dedicated to fighting for clean water around the world. Our research focuses on underserved communities, particularly in Latin America.
Aquality’s roots go back to Muisne, Ecuador, when the organization was founded in 2007 under the name Agua Muisne, also known as Water Ecuador, in the United States. The organization was founded in response to a lack of clean water options in rural Ecuador. We built water centers along the coast of rural Ecuador, ran research studies, and worked on education projects. After the earthquake in the spring of 2016, we helped in the emergency response by providing food, water, and other emergency supplies to those displaced by the earthquake.
As our research on water systems grew, it began to take us to other countries around Latin America. In response to this, we decided to rename the organization “Aquality” to reflect the global nature of health and water systems that stretch beyond just a single country.
