I see 2008 financials posted ...but, not 2009.
Knowing nothing about this charity (and yes, Shak is a great guy) the first thing I want to know is what the numbers are that hit the project vs the administrative costs.
There are a LOT of water non profits. I have a friend running a FOR profit providing water to millions...b/c it's a huge business.
In the country I live now, the majority of the populace do not have consistent access to clean water.
Irregardless of non profits...without governmental desire and support (which my friend has, in his country) where I'm at now...it simply doesn't happen.
I'll check back in with them once they have up to date financials...and, ideally, it should be in a web page, not a PDF, so that people that are hard pressed for time yet would like the info, can get the "cliff notes" without having to spend serious money downloading a bloated file (yep, it's pay per gigabyte here as well in this country if you want a connection north of 56KBPS).
Good luck to them.
