Blacksmith Institute

Founded in 1999, Blacksmith Institute’s vision is a clean planet for our children. We develop and implement solutions for pollution-related problems in the developing world. We work cooperatively with partnerships of donors, governments, NGO’s and others, and provide strategic, technical, and financial support to local champions as they strive to solve specific, pollution-related problems in their communities.

Blacksmith Institute’s name is inspired by the hard work of a blacksmith who, in a dirty environment, creates items that are practical, useful, and can stand the test of time. Blacksmith Institute strives to emulate this with its projects - creating and supporting local agencies that really work to solve pollution problems.
