HEALTH

Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

43% of those deaths are children under five years old. Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16,000 lives every week.

TIME

In Africa alone, women spend 40
billion hours a year walking for water.

Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school -- all of which fight poverty.

Education

Clean water helps keep kids in
school, especially girls.

Less time collecting water means more time in
class. Clean water and proper toilets at school
means teenage girls don’t have to stay home
for a week out of every month.

Women Empowerment

Women are responsible for 72% of the
water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa.

When a community gets water, women and girls get their lives back. They start businesses, improve their homes, and take charge of their own futures.
