McMaster Initiative for Water (MI Water) is a non-profit, student-run group focusing on preserving water in the local community and working to provide clean water to developing communities. In order to fulfill our goals, MI Water works to raise awareness amongst students and fundraise to help global organizations with similar missions.
MI Water is a working group of the Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG) of McMaster University. OPIRG is a student funded/student directed organization working on issues of human rights, the environment and social justice. They organize around issues of concern in working groups. Although each working group is unique, they all use consensus decision-making, non-violence, and anti-oppression principles. (www.opirg.ca)
