The Problem

1 in 9 people do not have access to safe water, and together we can change this. Women and girls are often responsible for collecting water for their family. This is time not spent working, caring for family members, or attending school. Water, sanitation, and hygiene related disease kill nearly one million people each year, and every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease. Access to safe water can protect and save lives, just because it's there. Access to safe water has the power to turn time spent into time saved, when it's close and not hours away. Access to safe water can turn problems into potential: unlocking education, economic prosperity, and improved health.
