THIS IS THE GET IN THE GAME PODCAST
WITH SCOTT LINEBRINK
George Greene III is the co-founder and executive chair of Water Mission, a nonprofit organization that fights to solve the global water crisis that impacts 2.2 billion people.
In 1998, George and his wife, Molly, were operating an environmental engineering company in Charleston, South Carolina, when they heard about the devastation in Honduras caused by Hurricane Mitch. After receiving a request for multiple water treatment systems in Honduras, and being unable to find existing systems that would work, George and his team of engineers took action to build such a system. With that, the idea for Water Missions International was born. Now, Water Mission provides safe water, sanitation and hygiene solutions in 57 countries, and has more than 400 staff members working around the world in permanent country programs.
Greene joins “Get in the Game” this week to discuss his faith and the story of Water Mission with Scott Linebrink who, in addition to hosting the podcast, serves as the partnerships director for Water Mission.
“Get in the Game” is part of the Sports Spectrum Podcast Network.
