Skoll Awardee


Ned Breslin is a 2011 winner of the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship who spent 30 years in the international water and sanitation sector, most recently as CEO of Water For People. During his time at Water For People he led the development of a systems change initiative called "Everyone Forever" that has spread well beyond Water For People and transformed the way governments and communities drive to full water and sanitation coverage at scale. In 2015 Ned was given the unique opportunity to join Wounded Warrior Project where he is, among other things, focused on partnerships, cutting edge investments and the building out of a program that mirrors Everyone Forever in the veterans space. The shift in sector has been both exciting and liberating.
