Charity Water


YMUN XLIII's 2017 non-profit partner is charity: water.

Yale Model United Nations is excited to announce that this year's non-profit partner will be charity: water. Their mission is to bring safe and clean drinking water to people in developing nations. charity: water focuses on working with local experts and community members to find simple, effective, and sustainable solutions in afflicted areas across the globe. By helping solve this issue, charity: water aims to give agency to over 663 million people as access to clean water means education, income, and health- especially for women and children.  To date, charity: water has helped over 6.4 million people get access to clean water. 100% of all public donations go towards funding clean water projects. Learn more at www.charitywater.org

With this partnership, both charity: water and YMUN hope delegates can better understand this fundamental problem facing our world and recognize that regardless of their young age they are capable of taking action and changing the status-quo.

keynote speaker

Noah McColl manages a third of charity: water's $26M annual program investments, a portfolio that includes water, sanitation and hygiene programs in East and Central Africa. Since graduating from Yale's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in 2010, Noah's career has centered around private and public initiatives in Africa, most notably in the Central African Republic, Ethiopia and Uganda. He's worked under programs funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, UNDP and USAID. When starting at charity: water, Noah was the organization's first field-based employee and thus has unique insight into charity: water's work at the project and beneficiary level.


Yale Day

As YMUN is hosted in the heart of Yale’s campus, delegates can experience life at Yale through Yale Day on Friday, January 20th, 2017. Attend Master Lectures with Yale professors, explore Yale’s campus with a guided tour, or try a new activity with Yale’s student extracurricular organizations. Delegates can also have lunch with Yale professors and students and attend our College Admissions Panel. 


Global Exchange Program

The Global Exchange Program is a challenging, international relations program for highly motivated and exceptional delegates during Yale Day on the morning of Friday January 20th, 2017. This program aims to help delegates grapple with major issues and fundamental leadership questions that they will face as the next generation of leaders.

Delegates will have a chance to work very closely with some of Yale’s most impressive professors in lectures, seminars, and a town hall style debate. Delegates selected for the Global Exchange program will also be invited to a lunch with the program’s professors.
