Soap business for 5
Poor people, particularly women, are often unable to engage in paid work when they don't have safe water nearby. This is because they often spend hours each day trekking to the nearest water source, waiting their turn in long lines for water, or are too ill with water-related diseases to have the strength to work. \ \ \ \
People living near safe water supplies can look after the water needs of their family in a matter of minutes, leaving the rest of the day free to earn much-needed cash. When people have better health and more time through WaterAid projects households are able to improve their income in many different ways - including increased vegetable sales, farming, and soap-making. Your donation of $500 provides the start-up costs for a local soap-making business for five people.
