Dec. 5, 2010 -- The World Water Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Anne Deane as its new Executive Director. Joining the World Water Center staff on July 17, 2010, Anne brings with her a passion for safe water and its ties to global health.

In her role as executive director, Anne is responsible for furthering the organization's mission and building a constituency for safe water issues. Anne's interest for safe water started in her sophomore year at Duke University when she read Tracey Kidder's "Mountains Beyond Mountains." While at Duke, she completed a research paper on point-of-use water technology where the premise of it touched on the necessity to approach safe water from a socio-cultural perspective.

Her international travels to rural communities exposed her to the complexity of the issues related to the water crisis. Welcome, Anne.

The World Water Center seeks to improve the world's safe water resources by promoting public education; implementing environmentally sound-culturally appropriate solutions; and fostering collaboration among local communities, partner organizations and governments. The World Water Center exists as a global place dedicated to the possibility of people being united to bring about clean and safe water for all. It is a non-partisan, independent charitable (501c3) corporation organized and existing under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States. The World Water Center's web site is available internationally, free to all. Web:
