LET'S TAKE GIRLS OUT OF THE WATER CYCLE
There are still almost a billion people without access to clean water or sanitation facilities in remote communities. These people desperately need our help. With your CONTINUED support, we will continue to make a world of difference.
377 people die every hour from diseases linked to poor sanitation, poor hygiene and contaminated water.
Safe, clean water is the key to Global Health.
Many women and children in the developing world spend hours each day walking miles to collect water from dirty or unsafe pools and rivers.
In urban areas they collect it from polluted waterways or pay high prices to buy it from vendors.
WHY WATER AID
Hygiene education programs are designed in collaboration with the community.
Good hygiene, like regular hand washing, ensures that the benefits of new clean water and sanitation facilities are fully realized.
WaterAid’s bottom-up collaborative approach to hygiene promotion makes it more likely that community members will listen to and accept suggested behavioural changes.
Community Health Committees are created at each project to ensure hygiene practices are sustainable.
