The Student Association for International Water Issues (SAIWI) is a student organization at the University of Nevada, Reno, whose mission is to increase access to clean drinking water and improved sanitation services. Working on a local, village to village level, SAIWI implements sustainable water projects that educate and empower communities, while also providing hands-on international experiences to our student volunteers.
