If you want to change everything, start with one thing. Start with Water
There are 663 million people on the planet who don’t have access to life’s most basic need. That’s right, 663 million human beings—just like you and me—struggle to nd water every single day.
When people don’t have access to clean water, they drink disease- filled water instead. They don’t have a choice. And how do they get it? They walk for it. Mostly, the job falls to women and children, who might walk up to four hours a day to collect dirty water. That’s time they can’t spend caring for their families, earning income, or learning in school.
When a community gets clean water, lots can change. It can improve health, decrease medical expenses, increase equality, give girls more time in school, and give women the chance to grow food or earn income.
Why did we chose to focus on water? Because we’re on a mission to change everything. And we believe that changing everything starts with clean water.
Economies & Communities
Feeding our world takes up to 90% of our freshwater withdrawals. When a water project is built in a community, members can often use the new water source to grow small gardens near their homes and secure their own food supply. Self-sufficient households are less affected by conflict, famine or inadequate government services.
In most rural communities worldwide, women and young girls are responsible for walking to collect water for their families. Building a water project nearby can give women the freedom to pursue an education or earn extra income. Water Committees are often the first chance for women to step into elected leadership roles.
By 2050, the world’s population is estimated to grow by three billion and 90% will be in the developing world. Unless sustainable water solutions are scaled fast, regions already stressed for water sources will be over capacity.
