Change starts with education. Hover over the tiles below to learn how access to clean water will help communities in need—then spread the word using #SpredWater.
Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. 43% of those deaths are children under five years old. Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16,000 lives every week.
In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking for water. Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school — all of which help in the fight against poverty.
Access to a reliable source of 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 also means teenage girls don’t have to stay home for a week out of every month.
Women are responsible for 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa. When a community gains reliable access to clean water, women and girls get their lives back. Their time is freed up to start businesses, improve their homes, and take charge of their future.
