Why Water?

For people in developing countries, safe water can change everything.

703 million people in the world live without clean water. UNICEF 2019

That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide or over twice the population of the USA. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

But access to clean water means health, which leads to increased wealth, and education - especially for women and children.

Safe water changes everything:

 

HEALTH

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

Children under-five are on average more than 20 times more likely to die from illnesses linked to unsafe water and bad sanitation than from conflict. UNICEF 2019

 

WEALTH

When people are healthy, they don't need to spend money on taxis to clinics, on consultations with specialists, on buying medicines and return taxi’s home.  This means more money for the families to spend on hygiene, food and education. 

 

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.

 

TIME

Every day, women and girls around the world spend an estimated 200 million hours collecting water. WHO & UNICEF 2010

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

 

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

Women and girls are responsible for water collection in 8 out of 10 households with water off premises. WHO/UNICEF 2017

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.

Transform the lives of a family forever by sponsoring a Water, Hygiene & Sanitation (WaSH) intervention.  WaSH is proven to dramatically improve health, wealth and education.

 

The holistic intervention includes a water filter, that removes 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.99999% protozoa from any water source.  We provide training in its sustainable use and hygiene and sanitation awareness. 

At 50p per month to supply a family with 2,000 litres of safe water a day water for 10 years, we know of no better value for money preventative intervention. 

In 2022, before our intervention in rural Gambia,  95% of 3,500 people were ill due to waterborne disease, poor sanitation and hygiene, just eight weeks later 95% were well!
