Grant helps WaterStep create Virtual Training Center

A $25,000 Louisville Water Foundation grant and matching funds from local philanthropist Sue Badgett covered the cost of a new Virtual Training Center at WaterStep.

The Louisville-based nonprofit organization will use the center to continue their water education program while adhering to new pandemic health guidelines.

WaterStep also will use the center to communicate with field consultants and partners in over 50 countries.

“We are so grateful that the Louisville Water Foundation and Sue Badgett recognized the urgent need for us to have this improved technology and capability,” said WaterStep Founder and CEO Mark Hogg.

“This new center will not only address the immediate needs for increased virtual training and education options, but it will also support all of our current and future projects around the world by allowing us to provide real-time, on-going support.”
