LET'S GIVE HER MORE TIME FOR WHAT MATTERS.

With access to clean water, we give mothers more time for what matters:
family, opportunity, health.

Help us reach our goal of $595,000 and give the gift of time, safety and growth.


WHY WATER?

SANITATION

2.3 billion people don't have access to an adequate bathroom, that's one in three of the world's population

Without access to toilet facilities, infection and often deadly disease is easily spread through contaminated water sources.

DISEASE

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.

ACCESS

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 WATERAID

HYGIENE

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.

SANITATION

All WaterAid projects support the construction of communal or household level toilet facilities in rural communities, urban slums and primary schools.

Improved sanitation facilities help keep human waste away from water sources and other human contact.

EDUCATION

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.
